No-Bake Energy Balls

I am dragging.  I have had 3…ok possibly 4 cups of coffee today. I get up early to get the kids out the door, and I stay up late to get my work done. There are 3 of them (5 if you count the Hubby and the Dog) and just one little ole’ me. I need all the help in the energy department I can get.  Since I have been running in and out the door like a crazy woman, grabbing whatever is handy to munch on the way. I wanted to have a healthy treat ready to grab at a moments notice.  Enter these No-Bake Energy Balls. They are full of protein, fiber, and a little bit of chocolate to keep this momma on her toes.

Since the kids helped me make them (as if they need more energy) my 4 year old said that they would be better with sprinkles…PINK sprinkles. 😉 If you are making these for a snack for the kids after school, or before sports, you can roll them in sprinkles; whatever color you choose. Now my only problem, is only eating one of these yummy treats!

    I made these no-bake energy balls today, and they are very delicious! I love how easy it is to throw them together. The biggest problem is they’re so good that you want to eat more than just one. They’re very filling. I like that you can easily substitute or add ingredients. I followed the recipe exactly this time, but next time might add raisins or chopped dried apples. To Lynette, you may want to consider carob chips. They are a healthier tasty alternative to chocolate chips.

    i made the original version of these and they were amazing!! Everyone loved them! And so easy to make! Then i modified the 2nd batch to have the gluten free oats, subbed blue agave nector for the honey, added a scoop of protein power and subbed the peanut butter for all natural almond butter. Incredible! I like the ideas of subbing the chocolate for raisens. Thanks amanda for this amazing recipe!!!

  5. Like this recipe a lot. Pretty simple and looks like a quick preparation. Great for grabbing and going during a hectic morning when short on time

  6. thanks so much! i have been looking for a recipe like this….and sounds so flexible. i’ll try the original first, but i can see adding all kinds of things (nuts, flax seed, raisins, etc.). have you ever tried freezing them?
