How I Am Successfully Living With Diabetes plus my No Bake Peanut Butter Energy Balls Recipe
Recently I went for my annual physical. I felt I was in good health and didn’t anticipate any problems. A few days later, the lab called to tell me my blood glucose numbers were elevated, putting me in a state of pre-diabetes.
All 3 of my brothers had diabetes, and I am overweight, so I wasn’t completely surprised. I think I have been skating on the edge of diabetes for at least 10 years. Thankfully, I am in a place where diet and exercise can lower my numbers.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls
I started making energy balls regularly to help save money. Making chocolate peanut butter energy balls take the place of having to buy expensive energy bars. I’d much rather spend about $8 on 6-8 servings of chocolate and peanut putter energy balls rather than $2-3 for just one bar. I also love that these can last outside the refrigerator for the entire day! All of our energy ball recipes are freezer-friendly too, so you can prep a few batches in one sitting and store them for later.
These chocolate peanut butter energy balls are the perfect snack to pack if you know you will have a long gap in between meals, because they balanced with protein, fiber and healthy fats to keep you fuller longer and prevent any 3 o’clock energy crashes. They get their chocolatey flavor from the cocoa powder, which is unsweetened and a source of fiber! Did you know tablespoon of cocoa powder contains 1.8g of fiber? This recipe contains over 5 grams by having 1/4 cup cocoa.

The chickpea peanut butter energy balls have been a family favorite since I first made them three years ago. Remember when Meghan was stealing balls during the photo shoot?
Seriously: where does the time go?! When I developed that recipe, I was pregnant with Luke. This time, Luke was the 2 year old and he decided it was his turn to be the energy ball thief. So funny!
I hope you are having a great week and you get a chance to try this healthy snack recipe! If you love healthy energy balls that taste like a treat, you’ll probably love these Birthday Cake Energy Balls, too!

Preparing PB Cacao Bliss Balls is quite simple. It requires only 8 min time to get ready and further one hour to solidify the contents. To begin the process, procure a mixing ball and pour the ingredients into it. Combine all the contents into a mixture. Draw the matter almost 1 ½ tbsp scoop for one ball. The dessert is ready.

Tips to make these truffles
- Crush the Cornflakes very finely or more coarsely to play on the texture of the filling. When blended very finely, it will create a super smooth filling. Keeping some larger chunks will add a more crunchy texture to the truffles (which I personally love!)
- Melt the Peanut Butter in the microwave for a few seconds if you keep it in the fridge or if it is hard. You want the peanut butter to be very liquid to blend properly with the other ingredients.
- Play with the temperatures to create the perfect chocolate coating. The peanut butter balls needto be very cold when dipped in warm melted chocolate to create a shell that will harden straight away.
- Melt the Chocolate in a narrow but high container - like a plastic measuring jug - to easily dip in the peanut butter filling. Or transfer the melted chocolate from the melting bowl to a high container or large glass.
- If the peanut butter balls seem to be getting warm while you dip them - place them back in the freezer for a few minutes. If the chocolate seems to be hardening or be less liquid and smooth when you are coating the truffles, place it back in the microwave for a few seconds to get it fluid again.
- Make sure the chocolate shell is fully set and hard before drizzling some peanut butter over to finish them.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls
When you live with two growing boys as I do, there is no such thing as having too many snacks in the house. Am I right? Of course, the primary battle is having plenty of healthy and nutritious options available which is why I have created these rich, chewy, and delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls.
Full of protein, fiber, and nutrients, they are the perfect pre or post-workout snack. Even better? I promise they will nip your chocolate peanut butter craving right in the bud.
Naturally sweetened with ripe bananas, these energy balls are naturally vegan and gluten-free. Bananas are one of my son’s favorite snacks and as a result, we always seem to have them in the house. Perhaps it’s the inner-hoarder in me but I am always buying a few more than we need which results in perfectly ripe leftover bananas each week.
Secretly, I am thrilled, because ripe bananas are one of my favorite ways to naturally sweeten oatmeal, smoothies, muffins and more.
- Use old-fashioned oats as they are heartier than quick cooking oats.
- Use quality dark chocolate. If you want dairy-free, try Enjoy Life.
- If you don't want to use or have honey, replace it with maple syrup.
- Use natural cocoa powder vs Dutch-processed cocoa powder as natural cocoa powder isn't as intense of a flavor.
- If mixture is dry, stir in water 1 tbsp at a time until you can easily form balls without them falling apart.
- Place the energy balls in the fridge for at least 15 minutes so they can set up and stay firm.
