Did you ever just need a little something to hold you over until dinner? You know, it’s an hour before dinner time and you’re starting to wonder whether your husband would notice if you stole a piece or two of his dark chocolate bar. When it’s that time at our house for me or the kids, these gluten free energy balls work wonderfully.

Peanut Butter and Bacon Gluten Free Energy Balls
These gluten free energy balls are super easy to make and they are no bake too so they are a great choice in the summer when you want something fast. Make sure that when you buy the oats, you choose gluten free oats. They aren’t all gluten free so make sure that you check the packaging. These aren’t a sweet treat so if you want them sweeter, you can adjust the proportions of the peanut butter to the honey until you find one that is sweet. This is one of the easiest no bake protein balls I’ve made.

The key to keeping these fresh is to refrigerate them in a container with a tight fitting lid. They should stay good for at least 5-7 days that way. Of course, they never last that long in my house because they are so delicious. If you’re adding them to the kids’ lunch boxes, you can store them in plastic zipper bags in the refrigerator for individual portions. They’ll love these gluten free peanut butter balls with oatmeal.
