No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Chews (of Hyperbole Worthy Deliciousness)

Lately I’ve been trying to snack smart while I’m working (to avoid those sugar crashes I mentioned yesterday!) and in the middle of summer without central air conditioning I’ve been finding it hard to grab anything other than fruit or a granola bar. I started looking into no bake and vegan recipes to see if there was anything tasty and simple that I could find, and when I came tasted the results of these chocolate peanut butter chews I had to share them!

Part of my excitement comes from the fact that they use a rice krispies style cereal- and because I’ve been vegetarian since I was five or six I’ve never been able to have a rice krispie square!! This is making up for elementary school, guys. It’s almost as big as when I had my first s’more two years ago :)

The ingredients are simple, and after you mix up the melted chocolate chips with everything here, you just fold in the crisped rice cereal and shape them into mounds.

Then you pop them into the freezer for a few minutes and they’re ready for you to inhale delicately sample with more self restraint than I posses.

They’re simple to put together, delicious and have enough in them to actually make a dent in your appetite.

These have made me confident enough to try out other no bake ideas, and I think they’re going to become permanent parts of my summer secret weapon arsenal. They’re definitely worth trying, you can find the recipe at the Oh She Glows, which is full of healthy amazing ideas for your nibbling needs.

  1. These look amazing and I love that they’re no bake.
    Definitely going to try these out soon! :)

  2. Those look DELICIOUS! It’s so great that they don’t require any oven time, so even on those really hot days when you’re craving some yummy chocolate you wont melt in the kitchen!

  3. YUM
    I had something similar when I was younger and they were just delicious!!!! I definitely haven’t made them myself before. I’m now craving chocolate and peanut butter :)

  4. Uh, yum. You really can’t go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter. Like, at all.

  5. Wowza. That looks heavenly!

  6. This sounds so yum! Do you know a substitute for brown rice syrup? Just curious.

  7. I first had these while playing in a summer pit orchestra from Finian’s Rainbow. They are incredibly delicious, and somewhat granola-like, but different. Good for the somewhat ADD eater. (=me)

    Annie’s Energy Balls


    1 cup rolled oats
    1/2 cup wheat germ
    1/2 cup oat bran (plus oat bran for rolling)
    1 cup dried fruit, if desired
    1/2 cup chocolate chips
    1 cup light karo syrup or brown rice syrup
    1/2 cup chunky peanut butter


    1. Mix together and roll in oat bran
    2. Store either wrapped in plastic wrap or in other covered dish. Can be doubled easily.

    Feel free to customize to different tastes; use almond butter and then a drop of orange blossom water plus golden raisins and cut up figs (no chocolate chips) to make a sort of Middle-Eastern version…or add a bit of salt and homemade caramel instead of the corn syrup/brown rice syrup to make it super rich but full of whole grains. Very easy to change and substitute, that’s for sure!

    Love your blog! You are seriously the cutest! Also I am making these next time I need a snack at 11pm.

  9. These look incredibly delicious. I make something similar with oats. They are so quick and easy to make and in this heat, I loathe the thought of turning on the oven.

  10. I adore no-bake desserts because of the idea that if my oven if busy for the next few hours, I can still make a dessert. I haven’t come across very many recipes that actually entice me, but these look like delicious little snacks ;)

  11. I’m thinking this recipe will soon be making an appearance on my own blog!
