How to Make Energy Balls:
Base: This can be oats, edible flours, or a combination of the two. Dates also work well as a base!
Nut Butter: This can be any nut or seed butter of choice. Some examples are peanut, cashew, sunflower, mix nut, and almond. The butter is used as the main binding agent. If using dates, you can omit the butter and opt-in for coconut oil, just another option.
Sweetener: This can be honey, maple syrup, agave, or pretty much anything that will add some sweetness. Preferably a sticky liquid base, but other granulated sweeteners can be used. The sweetener will also act as a binding agent.
Add-ins: Literally anything! Chia seeds, chopped nuts, dried fruits, chocolate chips, coconut flacks, flax seeds, hemp seeds. The list of add-ins could go on forever. Add-ins provide additional flavors and textures.
Protein Powder: This can be whey or plant-based, whatever fits the dietary needs. Play around with protein flavors too.
These are the basics of putting any energy ball together! So, you can see just how versatile energy balls can be. Prepping a batch of energy balls should only take about10 minutes and requires no extra baking or cooking. We do recommend letting them set/harden in the fridge for about 30 minutes before snacking. Each batch makes around 10-15 energy balls. Keep them stored in the fridge or freeze for up to 3 months.
