No Bake Energy Balls

Man, I love a good no bake energy ball recipe. And goodness, there are so many variations. Here is one of my go-to options…

Why?

  1. No bake. Hello?
  2. Convenient
  3. Travel well for roadtrips, in a cooler
  4. A smarter sweet treat than other options
  5. Portion control
  6. Kid friendly- for eating and making together
  7. Could store in freezer
  8. Snack? Breakfast? Dessert? Sure!
Ingredients:
1 c. rolled oats (I usually use regular, but in a pinch I have subbed in for steel cut oats- just used less)
1/2 c. mini semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. flax seed (preferably ground, however I have used whole)
1/2 c. peanut butter (I prefer almond butter, personally. However whatever your family prefers is best. Crunchy/creamy? Doesn’t matter. Heck, Use cashew butter!)
1/3 c. honey (In a pinch when I didn’t have honey- gasp!- I used maple syrup)
1 t. vanilla extract
Combine everything. Form little balls. Arrange on baking sheet in freezer for 1 hour to set.
Optional:
After rolling your balls, you could roll them in sprinkles, coconut, nuts, etc, for jazz. ๐Ÿ™‚
Enjoy!

    Kid tested and mother approved today in my house. Made these and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with oats, wheat flour, applesauce, baking powder, chips. Both are a hit, but I was told the balls were more fun to make!

    • That’s awesome!! Thank you for taking a moment to share! And yes, I think rolling up the energy balls are more fun!
