Peanut Butter Energy Balls

January 24, 2017

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. :)
