Cookie Butter Energy Balls (No-Bake)

Posted by on Feb 22, 2013 in Breakfast, Cooking, Featured

Have you tried cookie butter yet??  I had seen it quite a few times while shopping at Trader Joe’s, but hadn’t tried it until recently.  It is so good!  It has the flavor of biscuit cookies or gingerbread, with the texture of peanut butter.  It comes in smooth and chunky and both are amazing!   I especially like it on graham crackers or just straight from the jar. ;)

These energy balls are great for breakfast or an afternoon pick me up.   I hope you get the chance to try them out and enjoy them as much as we do.

1 1/4 cup of old fashioned oats

1 cup of sweetened coconut, toasted

1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips

1/2 cup of cookie butter, crunchy or smooth

1 tablespoon of chia seeds

2 tablespoons of flax seed meal

1/3 cup of honey

1 teaspoon of vanilla

pinch of salt

Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.  Cover and refrigerate for a half an hour or so until it firms up and is easy to shape.  Use a small scoop and your hands to form small balls.  Place in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.  Will last up to a week.

  1. We make these with peanut butter, chia seeds, ground flax, wheat germ, oats, Rice Krispies, and raisins! YUMMM!!

    • That sounds good Jill! I have another protein ball recipe with Rice Krispies and I love it!

  2. These are a great pre-workout snack! I eat two an hour before my hard training sessions and they give me tons of energy! Not to mention cookie butter is sooo addicting!

  3. Where do you get cookie butter? I haven’t heard of it?

    • I got mine at Trader Joes. It is the consistency of peanut butter but has the flavor of gingerbread biscuit cookies. You can get it at other stores but it is called Biscoff or Speculoos. If you can’t find it you can definitely sub in any nut butter!

  4. did you mean cookie butter or peanut butter in the recipe, I looked up cookie butter but couldn’t find it

    • You can definitely use peanut butter, but I used cookie butter from Trader Joes. They have it at other stores (I know for sure Raleys) but it is called Biscoff or Speculoos. It has the texture of a nut butter but the flavor of gingerbread biscuit cookies. Trader Joes even has one swirled with chocolate :)
