No-Bake Peanut Butter and Jelly Balls

  • Author: Meghan Yager
  • Total Time: 1 hour, 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 1/2 - 2 dozen 1x


To satisfy an afternoon hunger pang, reach for the no-bake peanut butter & jelly balls. They pack a real punch of flavor in each chewy bite.


  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup shelled hemp seeds
  • 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter (or sub almond or sunflower seed butter)
  • 1/2 cup jelly or jam, your favorite flavor (I used raspberry)


  1. Place oats and hemp seeds in a large mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  2. Add peanut butter and jelly to the dry ingredients. Use a silicone spatula to combine well.
  3. Place mixture in refrigerator for 25 minutes, or freezer for 10 minutes to firm up a bit.
  4. Scoop out about one tablespoon of mixture and roll into a ball using your hands. Set aside.
  5. Continue with remaining mixture.
  6. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate for 30 minutes for best texture. Can be stored for up to 1 week in the refrigerator.
