Peanut Butter Energy Balls

 

Healthy Snacks Ingredients

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.


Healthy Snacks

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.
