Peanut Butter Energy Balls


I'm always looking for yummy, healthy snacks to enjoy at work. I usually need a pick-me-up around the 3 o'clock hour.

I found this recipe a couple months ago and was excited to try them out. You know I love peanut butter so I had high hopes this would be a keeper. PLUS - it doesn't require baking and only needs 5 ingredients. It doesn't get much simpler than that!

These little bites are so easy to make - perfect for Sunday when I meal-prep for the week ahead. Just keep them in the fridge and gobble them up as you like.

Here's what you'll need:

Peanut Butter Energy Balls

(recipe inspired from here)

  • 2/3 C. creamy all natural peanut butter

  • 1/2 C. dark chocolate chips

  • 1 C. old fashioned oats

  • 1/2 C. ground flax seeds (make sure your flax seed is ground!)

  • 2 Tbsp. honey

Combine all 5 ingredients in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Place in refrigerator for 15-30 minutes. The dough will be easier to roll.

Roll into 12 bite-sized-balls. I used a medium cookie school to help measure out the balls. Store in fridge up to 1 week.

*Special note: I forgot to grind up my flax seeds. Make sure you do that so they are easier to eat. The first time I made this recipe (pictured above) - I forgot and it was super obnoxious trying to eat while the seeds got stuck in my teeth. They were much better the second time around whenI used ground seeds. :)
