The best no-bake monster oat balls.

By popular demand…my favorite no-bake oat ball recipe!

I’ve mentioned these oat balls from Bless This Mess a million times on Instagram and here on the blog.  My favorite are her monster oat balls, but I make them slightly different and always double the recipe.  I’ve had many requests on Instagram to share the exact recipe I make, so here it is.

These no-bake oat balls make for a great snack or a fast breakfast.  I love them because they always taste good to me.  I can get tired of a lot of snacks, but these are a solid go-to for me. Enjoy!

No-bake monster oat balls

Yield: makes 20ish oat balls

Total Time: 10 minutes


2 cups old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup m&ms
1/4 teaspoon salt


In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together.  I usually use my hands. Then roll "dough" into 20ish balls.  Ideally let them chill in the fridge an hour before eating.  Store them in the fridge!

recipe slightly adapted from these.

  1. I love these so much but I can’t eat them because the raw oats tear up my stomach. Do you think they would be similar if I toasted the oats??

  2. I’ve always wanted to make these but I can’t stand peanut butter or any but butter really.. any ideas??? Sending love, hope and peace as always 🖤

  3. Ahh LOVE energy bites/oat balls!  Can’t wait to try these! 

  4. I love these so much! I’ve made them every few weeks since you first posted about them on your IG story… They’re SO good!
    Just a real quick unrelated question: what plugin/widget do you use to insert recipes into your posts? I’m new to wordpress and can’t quite figure it out! :)

    • I used to use Recipe Card! I believe what I’m using now was custom made by my developer…but I could be wrong because I have no idea about the backend of the blog haha :)

  5. I want to make these for a friend to have as a snack once she has a baby. Have you ever froze these?

    • I haven’t, but I have to believe they’d be fine if frozen and then just left to thaw in the fridge for a couple of days! They’d be a great gift for a friend with a baby!
