Google "gluten free energy balls", there are many recipes out there. I only say gluten free because people who eat gluten free get very creative with their recipes, and also GF are much healthier not having flour in them.
The recipes are all pretty similar, and very easy. I just made some that used almond butter, chia, oats, and honey (and maybe one other ingredient). They were very good, and healthier than a candy bar.
You can use any kind of nut butter, can also add in raisins, or coconut. Once your find a basic recipe, you can tweak it to your own liking.
There are a ton of recipes for them on Pinterest. But Google pulls up lots also.
I saw one made with mashed banana's, Peanut butter, oats, honey, flax seed, and teeny choc ships...I have to hunt that one up again. They looked yummy.

Peanut butter and chocolate are all sugars...does it have to include those?
Are you just looking for added energy or what's your goal?
Peanut butter isn't "all sugar". Of course, SOME brands have sugar, but not all. Read the labels.
If you're talking energy cookies, the first things that come to mind are ground sunflower seeds .... and powdered cocoa for the chocolate flavor.
It really depends on your preferences and if there are any allergies to consider.

I have all those things on hand, if you have a minute sometime please share your recipe Gabs, sounds delicious. I guess my goal is the most tasty edible good for you cookie I can make. If something tastes bad I dont eat it and I do have a sweet tooth. I do not like gobs of sugar but I need some. They have been putting them in the checkout area more at the store and they very pricey for what I get. Thanks all!!!!

I agree with checking Pintrest. Re: the peanut butter ones, I always add walnuts, flaxseed, and sometimes dried cherries. Sometimes I don't feel the need for chocolate chips, so just be creative and add whatever you like
