Easy Energy Balls Haiku: "Cinch & fun to make. (Wet your hands when rolling balls cause it's so sticky!)" My daughter and I enjoyed making these together and other than using 1/4 c. ground flax and 1/4 c. chia seeds instead of the full half cup of flax seeds kept everything the same. Couldn't bring myself to roll them as large as golf balls b/c they pack a punch - energy and crazy-filling. Ate one b4 jumping rope and added 10 min. onto my jam. Not to mention that they taste crazy delicious. I also used mini chocolate chips rather than regular size b/c I don't think the balls would've held together quite as well w/ the bigger chunks. Recipe doesn't specify to refrigerate or freeze which is my only complaint - wondering where and how long they keep... Read More

Could one possibly forget to add the chocolate chips in this? Yup - that was me. Ugh! Didn't realize it until I was done rolling these little buggers up so I decided to roll them in more coconut. Who doesn't love coconut? These were a breeze to throw together. Don't think I'll make again - even adding chocolate. They just weren't for me. Read More

Made with ingredients on hand like regular oats and amaranth instead of flax seed. Still came out great! Yielded 12 balls. Read More

I make these often. Instead of balls I press them into a brownie pan and cut into squares. Much easier in my opinion. Read More

I make these energy balls about every other week. I stick to the main ingredients oatmeal peanut butter honey & mini dark chocolate chips. I change it up sometimes substituting cut up apples in place of the bananas I put in raisins and/or dates ground flax seed chia seeds coconut. In other words whatever I have on hand at the time! I LOVE them and very often keep a few in a baggie in my car if I should get stuck somewhere. Read More

Added 1/2 up pecan meal. Yum!!!!! I'm addicted. 2017 Update: Changed to unsweetened coconut flakes and stevia sweetened dark chocolate chips. Added small amount of stevia sugar. Healthier! 2018 Update: I flattened one out and heated in microwave for 10 seconds. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read More

I substituted Splenda with Xylitol and used egg whites instead of 2 whole eggs and added a few carob chips at the 10 minute mark. They are a nice little sweet treat! I will make these again. Read More
