I am so excited to share with you that I finally finished my nutrition school and received my holistic nutritionist certificate. Yeee!!!
I really enjoyed the courses and learned a lot. I got so used to studying every day that the first day after my final exam I felt kind of strange because I didn’t have to study anything or prepare for exams. On the other hand, it’s great to be done with the study and be able to focus more on developing my nutrition business including this blog!
So, to celebrate my graduation, I made these delicious Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bites. They are super easy to make and don’t require any baking. You only need a few ingredients that you probably already have on hand:
They are also a much healthier dessert but only if you stick to the serving size which is one to two pieces. You will also find that they are quite satisfying so that you don’t really want to eat a lot.
I prefer to keep them in the fridge so that they stay nice and firm. They will become a bit soft at room temperature.

- 1 cup slow cooking rolled oats, divided into 3/4 cup + 1/4 cup
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 1/4 cup your favorite non-dairy or cow’s milk (I used coconut milk)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup chocolate powder
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- Grind 1/4 cup of rolled oats in a coffee grinder.
- Place the coconut oil, coconut sugar, milk and vanilla extract into a small pot and bring it to a simmer over medium heat. Mix to combine and add the ground and regular rolled oats. Mix quickly to combine and turn off the heat. Cover the pot and let it sit on the hot stove for about 30 minutes to allow for the oatmeal to swell up a bit.
- Add the chocolate powder and peanut butter. Mix well using a wooden spoon.
- Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop 1 tablespoon of the mixture, roll it into a ball and place on the baking sheet. Continue with the rest of the dough. Put the baking sheet in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
- Store in the fridge in a glass container with a tight lid.
