These energy balls are an awesome snack! They have a great balance of quick energy fuel, protein from the nuts, powdered milk, fiber, slow-burning carbs from the flour, oats, and wheat germ, and good-for-you fats! They are also filling and, best of all, absolutely delicious. They are good for about a week. Bon Appetite!

I was happy to find a recipe that didn't use whey protein powder since I didn't feel like ordering a specialty ingredient. I made a few substitutions because I didn't have some things on hand. I used almonds instead of the hazelnuts. I also did not have the wheat germ so I substituted half oat bran and half ground flaxseed for that. I am quite pleased with the result.

I couldn t bring myself to use all the nuts peanut butter and honey so I subbed 3/4 of unsweetened apple sauce 1/4 cup of almond milk for the honey. I only used 1/2 cup of peanut butter. Also added 1 1/2 cups of chocolate whey protein isolate and 1/2 cup 70% dark chocolate chips.
