Y'all. I make these weekly (for myself as well as others), and let me tell you why:
1. They're SO EASY to make
2. They're the BEST midday or pre-workout snack
3. They're delicious (obvi)
4. The flavors and combinations for these bad boys are ENDLESS
Plus, it's easy fuel that has protein, carbs AND fat all in one bite!
So, I figured why not share?! I'm giving you the base recipe, and from here you can add LITERALLY WHATEVER you want. As long as you have enough of your binding ingredients, you have free reign to make these however you please!
But before you do anything, make sure you have these things on hand:
all-natural nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew, etc.)
honey or pure maple syrup
Get ready to get your hands (a little) dirty!!
1 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup nut butter (I always use creamy almond butter)
1/4 cup pure maple syrup (or honey / agave)
4 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup mini dairy-free chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life Foods™)
1/8 tsp sea salt
optional add ins: collagen, protein powder, seeds, pumpkin, dried fruit, dates, etc.
Mix all ingredients well in a large bowl. Scoop out and form into golfball-sized circles. Store in refrigerator.
**Add more nut butter if necessary for binding
Gram your energy balls!
