Peanut Butter Energy Balls

 

My assistant, Sommer, makes these peanut butter energy balls all the time to eat before workouts and as a little snack.  We modified them slightly to contain some great superfood and hormone balancing ingredients! I’m so excited to share these with you. They are a great snack before or after exercise and since they are a little sweet they can scratch that itch for dessert we all get sometimes. All the ingredients are very clean and high quality so they are great for toddlers and children as well. Chia seeds, cacao nibs, oats, and honey are all fantastic for hormone balance!

 

 

Ingredients: 

1 C organic peanut butter

1 C Love n’ Peas protein powder

⅓ C gluten-free rolled oats

¼ C cacao nibs

2 T chia seeds

⅓ C raw organic honey

⅓ C unsweetened almond milk (or as needed)

 

 

Directions: 

1. Combine all ingredients except for the almond milk and roughly mix with a spoon.

2. Add the almond milk until all ingredients bind together and form a kind of dough.

 

 

3. If you own a kitchen scale roll the dough into little balls weighing between 23-25 grams. If you don’t have a kitchen scale you can estimate and make all the balls about an inch in diameter.

 

 

4. The batch should yield between 24-28 balls depending on the size. Store in an airtight container in the fridge, they can last up to three weeks or more in the fridge.
