These energy balls are something that I have been making since I was a freshmen in college and have always been my go to snack for hiking, traveling, or really just anytime of the day! I have tweaked several different recipes that I have used and created my own that I am in love with! I thought that I would share it with all of you! If you like peanut butter, you will love these. I promise.
1 Cup Peanut Butter
3 Cups Old Fashioned Oats
1/2 Cup Agave or Honey (I personally prefer agave)
1/3 Cup Flaxseed
1/3 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips
1/3 Cup Craisins
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Refrigerating is optional but it makes rolling the peanut butter mix into balls much easier!
Next, all you do is roll the mix into balls using your hands (or a cookie scooper would work too if you’ve got one!). This will be messy…You’ve been warned! Store the energy balls in the refrigerator and enjoy!
You can also add in coconut, dried cherries, almond slices, M&Ms (if you want them extra sweet!), or really anything that you think is delicous!
I sure hope that everybody loves these as much as I do! They are a great source of energy, fats, carbs, and protein!
