Energy Balls




This is a great snack for traveling or a perfect addition to your child’s lunch. This one is so good that it will even have the plant-based haters in your life coming back for more!




-3 cups of dry, raw oats (old fashion or one minute, not steal cut)

-2 cups of coconut flakes

-1 ½ cups of nut butter (I prefer peanut but almond is another fav)

-1 ½ cups of ground flax seed

-1 cup of chocolate chips

-¾ cups of honey or syrup (play with this step, start smaller than¾’s and work your way up, you can get away with less sugar)

-3 tbsp. of chia seeds

-3 tbsp. of pure vanilla extract

-2 tbsp. of cacao powder



Instructions: Combine all of the ingredients and mix really well. Once all ingredients are mixed evenly, form into balls (energy balls) about the size of strawberry


Ness’s special hint 1: you can do less or more sugar (honey or syrup) as wanted or needed. If they are not sticking together very well, add in more.


Ness’s special hint 2: your life will be easier if you rinse your hands under water after forming 3-4 balls. Leave hands a little damp when forming, after rinsing.


Enjoy these little treats, they are a family favorite!
