Are you always looking for healthy snacks but aren’t sure what to make? Snacks for the kids after school or something for you to eat late at night? Try these quick and easy peanut butter energy balls the whole family will love. My kids come home begging for them after school and my husband and I find ourselves snacking on them after the kids go to bed. These 4 ingredient energy balls are so easy to make you will be whipping them up all the time.
Peanut Butter Energy Balls
What makes these Energy Balls so easy is there are only four ingredients and no baking just mix them up.
Start with these four ingredients
- 1 Cup of Oats
- 2/3 cup of peanut butter
- 2 Tbsp of honey
- 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
First Step is to add all the ingredients into a bowl.
Second step is to mix all the ingredients together.
Next put the bowl in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes or until the peanut butter has hardened enough to mold into balls. If you skip this step the peanut butter is too sticky to work with. After the mixture cools take it out and use a spoon to create small balls out of the mixture. Then the energy balls are ready to eat. Can you believe it is that easy!! No baking and no cooking just mixing up four ingredients and your done. You can even let the kids help you make it.
Keep whatever leftovers you have in a Tupperware container in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat them again. Sometimes I even make a double batch so we can have them all week as a snack. I hope your family will enjoy these as much as mine have!
Healthy Tip: You could also add in 1/3 cup of flax seed to the mixture.
Ingredients Directions Now they are ready to eat. Keep any leftovers in a Tupperware container in the refrigerator. If you want to make them a little healthier add a 1/3 cup of flax seeds. Enjoy! www.happymomhacks.com
