I love treats like these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Balls that are on the healthy side, plus they are very easy to put together! With four simple ingredients that many of us have on hand – I’ll bet some of you will hop right off your chair and get them started right away. I highly recommend that you do.
But beware – these are little balls of peanut butter, chocolatey, coconutty addictiveness. You’ve been warned.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Balls
- 1 cup natural peanut butter
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- 2 Tablespoons honey
- ½ cup mini chocolate chips
- Melt coconut oil and honey together in a saucepan.
- Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until mixture is smooth.
- Fold in chocolate chips.
- Spread mixture into a 9x9 inch pan.
- Refrigerate for about two hours.
- Roll mixture into 1 inch balls.
- Refrigerate until ready to serve.
I use homemade peanut butter, which makes all the difference in every recipe if you ask me. You can’t beat the taste of fresh peanut butter. (It’s easier to make than you think!)

I use Homemade Almond Butter in most of these recipes. Once you learn to make nut butters, you’ll never go back to store-bought!
Keep these recipes on hand – especially in the summer time when you don’t want to turn on the oven but you want to make a treat. I love that all of these No-Bake Balls are filling and offer nourishment too. Protein, fiber, lightly sweetened…they are the perfect dessert of snack!
These also work great in a lunch box. To top it all off, these freeze well so you can make several ahead of time and store them in the freezer until you need them!

If I could only find a tasty nut free alternative I would try these.
I love it when I see a yummy recipe and I have all the ingredients already… No waiting :)
All I could think when I saw these was that to make them better, I would melt some chocolate chips and a little oil and dip them so that they were covered in a chocolate shell….not quite as healthy, but yum!
Heather Anne says
I have all that I need to make these today! :)

I make some peanut butter balls that look exactly like these. They are one of my family’s all-time favorites, but they have sweetened condensed milk and powdered sugar. I’m going to have to try this healthier version!

machele cave says
As I am allergic to coconut–any good alternative? I also will need to use almond butter in place of the peanut butter. These sound absolutely delicious in spite of my allergies.
Maybe palm oil/shortening if that works for you. Using almond butter sounds great!
I would love to try these. Thanks for the recipe!
Yep…going right to the kitchen to make some! Our oven has been broken since before thanksgiving; so we can make these! New stove comes Monday:)
Those look delicious! Does it have to be coconut oil? Or will olive oil work just as well? I’m not a coconut fan.
I believe olive oil would work, although I haven’t tried it so can’t say yes for sure. :)
My chocolate melted (guess i was too quick in folding in the chocolate chips) and created a beautiful swirled look. So then I just cut it into squares and called it fudge – oh my- IT IS DELICIOUS! So melt in your mouth (literally!) and creamy! What a blessed Christmas treat for this dairy allergy girl and her not dairy allergy husband! I cannot wait until the dairy allergy kids can try it tomorrow!
