Do you like turning on your oven in the heat of summer? Or would you rather make another great no bake cookie? Ever since I posted my chocolate no bake bites last week, and seeing how much you loved it, I figured you would love this honey bunches of oat bites too!

I’ll tell you a secret. I actually like this peanut butter bite cookie better than the chocolate one! Even though I’m not a huge peanut butter fan, I am loving these no bake cookies. Also- it’s even easier to make than the chocolate ones! No food processor needed for this one. Its literally just melt, and stir- then freeze.
With the oatmeal and hemp hearts added into the honey bunches cereal, really makes this cookie healthy. I love how I can let my youngest, pickiest eater ever even eat these for breakfast.
Yes, peanut butter bite recipe is similar to my chocolate bites cookie but- it tastes completely different. This one is crunchy, adding the warm peanut butter to the oats, does not make them soggy! As long as you freeze it right away, it will still be crunchy. What is similar? This one only takes 5 minutes to, that’s the best part right?
How to Make Peanut Butter Oatmeal No Bake Bites
In a small saucepan (or microwave safe bowl) melt peanut butter, coconut oil, honey and vanilla. Once it’s melted stir in the remaining ingredients and put in silicone form.
Why silicone? Do you have to? No, you can use your ice cube trays, but it is so much easier to get the cookies out. If I make them in an ice cube tray they often break, crumble, stick in the ice cube tray. Once I started to use the silicone molds- it became so much easier to take them out! And it’s them so much prettier, and we all know that kids will eat anything that looks cool! It’s actually kind of annoying eh?
Once you fill the molds with about 1 tbsp in each mold, freeze for about 1 hour. Once frozen, place in a container that is freezer safe.
