It seems energy balls have become all the rage. You can even buy pre-packaged ones at the grocery store now. I have tried a few of the pre-made balls, and honestly they just don’t taste as good as the homemade ones. It’s definitely worth the 10 mins it takes to whip these guys up. Here is my favorite recipe I think you will like just as much as I do!
1 cup Natural Peanut Butter or Nut butter of your choice (I prefer Laura Scudder’s creamy)
2/3 cup honey
2 tsp Vanilla extract
2 cups old fashioned rolled oats ( I love Bob Red Mill)
2 cups unsweetened coconut (I prefer the big flakes rather than shredded – they give an added crunch to the balls) Coconut Flakes I Use
1 cup dark chocolate chips
Mix peanut butter, honey, & vanilla until smooth. Add in oats & coconut. Lastly, add in chocolate chips. Roll into balls (an ice-cream scoop works well) – I like to vary the size I make so I have a few different size portions to choose from when I need a snack) Place on a cookie sheet and refrigerate until firm. I store mine in a container in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
Have you tried energy balls? I would love to know what ingredients are your favorite!
