Servings 20 bites


  • 1 ½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup vegan chocolate chips
  • ¾ cup unsalted unsweetened creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt


  • In a medium sized bowl add your oats, salt, chocolate chips, peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla. Stir until all ingredients are incorporated together.
  • Take a tablespoon and scoop a heaping amount of dough into the palm of your hand and roll mixture into a ball. Continue this process until all your dough is gone. I like to slightly wet my hands during this process as the dough is sticky and I find this helps.
  • Once your bites are all rolled place them in an air tight container and store them in the refrigerator.
  • Enjoy!


  • Feel free to use whatever kind of chocolate chips you prefer. I used semi-sweet but you could use dark chocolate or even cut up chocolate as well.
  • Make sure you store these in the refrigerator as this helps them to hold together better.
  • If you don't have peanut butter on hand any nut butter will work for these.
