Peanut Butter Energy Balls are a great snack. They have a satiating combination of protein, good carbs, healthy fats, and are high in fiber. Their portability makes them the perfect healthy on-the-go snack.
- Yields: About 18 balls
2/3 cup natural creamy peanut butter
1 cup old-fashioned oats, plus extra for rolling
1½ Tbsp. honey
1/4 cup miniature dark chocolate chips, plus extra for rolling
1/4 cup flaxseeds (ground)
Mix all ingredients in a bowl until well-combined.
Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, roll into approximately 1 inch balls
Lay out a thin layer of oats and chocolate chips on a cutting board or work surface and roll the balls in the mixture. Finish off by rolling each ball between your hands to pack in the oats and chocolate chips.
Store in the refrigerator until ready to be eaten. Enjoy!
