No-Bake Nutella M&M Oatmeal Balls are an irresistible sweet treat you can make in a matter of minutes! Bite-sized balls of Nutella love that are loaded with oats and mini M&M’s. Yum!

The end of our summer break might be in sight (boo!), but I don’t see a break in this summer heat anytime soon (double boo!). It’s the dog days of summer here in Dallas when the temps are 90+ all day, every day. I break a sweat just turning on the oven so most of the treats I’ve been making lately are either no-bake or frozen.

As much as I love baking, I love a good no-bake treat too! No-bake treats are usually quick & easy to make and when we’re craving something sweet, quick & easy is the name of the game.

These Nutella M&M Oatmeal Balls are a current fave. They’re sweet and chewy and loaded with so much yumminess…

From the hearty texture of the oats to the sweet crunch of the mini M&M’s to of course the amazing flavor of the Nutella, these balls are yum, yum, yum! Bet ya can’t eat just one. 😉

Be it for an afternoon snack, a late night sweet treat or a big platter for a party, these Nutella M&M Oatmeal Bites are so perfect for any occasion and everyone loves them! Enjoy!

  1. Could I turn these into lactation bites by adding brewers yeast and flax seed?? If you think I could do you have any suggestions on how much more wet ingredients to add?

  2. There is a warning on all oatmeal sold in Canada which states that it is not safe to be consumed uncooked. I believe this is due to a salmonella risk. How do you suggest we do in this case?

    1. Hi Greg! That’s very interesting. Here in the US, most oats (like rolled oats and instant oats) have been pre-steamed and heated to destroy potentially harmful pathogens, making them safe to eat raw. Less processed varieties, such as steel-cut oats, don’t undergo a steaming process and could, therefore, carry risky germs. That said, most people don’t eat raw steel-cut oats anyway. Certainly follow the recommendations stated on the package so you don’t risk getting sick. Thanks for sharing!
