"Make These Today" Energy Balls


In my search for gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, peanut-free, and egg-free recipes (it's humorous just writing out that long list!), there have been some hits and some misses. These energy balls are definitely a hit! 

The ingredients are simple: chocolate chips (we get vegan ones that are delicious, in semi-sweet), fast cooking oats (we get gluten-free), flax meal (so healthy!), chia seeds (again, so healthy and you can't even taste them), almond butter, and maple syrup. The first time I made them (pictured above; I've gotten better with practice), we didn't have maple syrup so I used honey. I prefer the maple syrup, but honey works in a pinch. 

You mix everything together, form into balls, and then store in the refrigerator. Even I can do that! 

You can find the full recipe from Show Me the Yummy.

I know you're always looking for kitchen shortcuts and I know forming the balls can be tedious. I wonder if it would be easier to roll the dough out and cut it into squares? Just a thought. xoxo
