I love energy ball recipes because they’re all so similar, yet so different. As long as the stuff sticks together, you’ve got yourself a successful snack. You can add whatever the heck you want to tailor them to your liking – I personally love adding chia seeds and hemp seeds. Today I’m sharing my go-to recipe when I want to make a quick, filling and energizing snack!
This recipe makes about 20 balls, and takes a total of 15 minutes. They’re dairy free and can be gluten free if you buy gluten-free oats.
2 cups quick oats (buy gluten-free quick oats if necessary)
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/2 cup natural almond butter (you can do a full cup of either nut butter, but I like mixing them)
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 tbsp melted coconut oil
1/4 cup flax seed meal
1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp hemp seeds
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Mix all ingredients. Chill in the fridge until firm. Roll into balls.
You can store these in the fridge for up to 1 week, or keep them in the freezer and take them out a few minutes before eating.
