What do you need to make energy balls?

  • Creamy Peanut Butter: This is the binding agent for these bites. You can substitute this for your go-to but butter.
  • Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips: I prefer to use mini chocolate chips, but you can also use chocolate chunks.
  • Old Fashioned Oats: Rolled oats or old fashioned oats are best for these energy bites. Stay away from instant and cut oats. In case you want to keep them free of gluten, use certified gluten free oats.
  • Ground Flax Seed: This brings in the dose of nutrients and fiber. Feel free to use chia seed or hemp seed instead of flax seed, or simply add more old-fashioned oats.
  • Honey: For the ideal dosage of sweetness, or use agave instead.

TIPS FOR MAKING ENERGY BITES

    1. Make sure you always refrigerate your mixture before starting to roll the bites to make it convenient. In case they’re still giving you a hard time, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water to the mix or simply wet your hands.

    2. If you don’t feel like rolling them into individual balls, you can lay out your mix into a square-shaped baking dish covered in parchment paper. Chill in the fridge then slice into bars.
