Today I just want to share a delicious, fast, and easy recipe with you all! There are unlimited variations of energy balls that you can make, and this one is my favorite.

First of all, the reason I love this recipe is that for one, it’s so delicious and easy to make; but these are also a nutrient and energy-dense snack that can be perfect for anyone who feels busy and overwhelmed. Often times I see that people forget to eat all day or just don’t feel like they have time. While we live in a world that glamorizes eating LESS, I am a strong advocate for eating ENOUGH.

This recipe can also make for an awesome snack for kids!

So, let’s get to it

I am sharing the ingredient brands I personally used, but you are welcome to use whatever you would like!

I N G R E D I E N T S

  • 1 cup Quaker Old Fashion Oats
  • 1/2 cup  + 2 tbs Smucker’s all natural peanut butter
  • 4 tablespoons of all natural honey
  • 4 tablespoons of Bob’s Red Mill Golden Flax Meal
  • 1 scoop Quest Nutrition multi-purpose protein powder (can use any brand/flavor)
  • 3 tablespoons Hershey’s dark chocolate chips – I usually like using mini chocolate chips but the store didn’t have them!

D I R E C T I O N S

  1. Put all ingredients into a bowl
  2. You could try to mix them around with a mixing spoon however I found it was much easier to just use my hands and mix everything as evenly as I could
  3. Roll “dough” into 1-2 inch size balls (I was able to make 17)
  4. Stick in refrigerator/freezer
  5. Once they are no longer sticky, store in a tupperware container or ziplock back and keep in refrigerator.

(this will be dependent on the ingredients you use and how many balls you are able to make. These nutrition facts are based upon the ingredients I used and the number of balls I was able to make)

1 ball = 113 calories // 6g fat // 10.5g carbs // 1.6g fiber // 5g sugar // 4.4g protein
