Balls on the Blog

Ok kids...who's ready for the quickest, bestest, easiest, healthiest, yummiest recipe in all the land? (You got all that?)
 
I've been seeing these little "No-Bake Energy Balls" dance all over Pinterest and blogs of all sorts for a while now and finally gave in and made them myself.
 
Y'all know me...I'm not a foodie in any way, shape, or form but when I come across a recipe and share it, you should automatically know it's that good. After I took the first bite I immediately kicked myself in the arse for not listening to Katie and introducing my tastebuds to these little gems a long...LOOONNNNGGGG....time ago.

Here's what you'll need:            
 
  • 1/ 2 C oats
  • 1/2 C coconut flakes
  • 1/2 C dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 C ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 C nut butter (peanut, almond or cashew butter)
  • 1/3 C honey (Fun fact: local honey is always THE best...it helps with allergies!)

In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients.
(Should look something like so:)

Once mixed well, refrigerate batter for at least 30 minutes. After your batter is chilled, scoop the batter into balls (tehe!) using an ice cream scoop.
 
Chill {your balls...ha!} for 20-30 minutes longer before eating and then GO TO TOWN!

These have been perfect for breakfast, snacks, or even a little healthy dessert.
 Y'all...they're even husband approved!

PS: today marks 4 weeks since they started on our house. It really is amazing how quickly it's coming together! As of yesterday, we have a roof!! A ROOF, PEOPLE!! This week they should finish shingling (is that a word?) and also put in windows!

  8. Love those energy balls! I've made them several times! Instead of Flax seed, I put pecans in my food processor and chopped them up - also you can do 1/2 milk chocolate chips and 1/2 white chocolate. One of my favorite snacks!
