These No Bake Peanut Butter Trail Mix Bites are perfect for travel, hikes, bike rides and mid-day snacks. They’re packed with all the good stuff, like oats, nuts, chia seeds, chocolate chips and raisins.
I whipped up these Peanut Butter Trail Mix Bites last week and devoured them all within just a few days. They were so addicting, I just couldn’t stop!
These trail mix bites are super easy to make and you probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry already. Even if you don’t, no worries! This recipe is extremely customizable. You can substitute dried cranberries for raisins, change up the variety of nuts, and really make them your own.
This recipe is gluten-free, vegan, and dairy-free. Just make sure that your oats are certified gluten-free, if necessary.
One note on making substitutions: make sure to follow the ratios. You need the correct amounts of wet and dry ingredients or else the bites won’t hold together and you’ll end up with Peanut Butter Trail Mix mush. Nobody wants that!
Hope you love these trail mix bites as much as I do! They’re a great snack to bring along on hikes, bike rides, in the car, or just as an afternoon snack. Peanut Butter lovers, you’ll love these!

- 1/3 cups unsalted almonds*
- 1/3 cup unsalted cashews*
- 1 Tablespoon flax seeds
- 3/4 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 cup dates, chopped
- 1/8 cups raisins
- 2 Tablespoons dark chocolate, chopped
- 3 Tablespoons honey** or maple syrup, plus more to taste
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup peanut butter, melted
- salt, to taste
In a small bowl combine the honey, vanilla, and peanut butter. Pour the peanut butter mixture over the nut and oat mixture and stir well. Taste mixture and add a pinch of salt if desired.
Line a baking sheet or large plate with parchment paper. Using wet hands, roll the mixture into 14-16 balls, slightly smaller than the size of a golf ball. Make sure to pack the mixture tightly. Place the baking sheet in the fridge for at least one hour to harden, then enjoy.
Peanut Butter Trail Mix Bites should last in the fridge for 10 days.
*If using salted nuts and/or peanut butter, I do not recommend adding salt at the end.
**If making vegan, use maple syrup.
