My entire family LOVES THESE just as written. The only thing I do differently is put all ingredients in my food processor and pulse until blended, scoop out and press flat in a glass dish which I then freeze. We can then cut them into bars! takes out a ton of the work from rolling into balls and mixing by hand! Read More

These are good but when you triple the batch, the honey is overpowering. Read More

Made as is but used 1/4 cup chia seeds and doubled recipe. Made 30 larger balls and I freeze them for the week. They are about 180 cal per larger ball and I use two as a morning snack if I plan a run. Husband loves them too and we both find them to be extremely filling and will hold you for quite a few hours between meals and perfect for a pre run fuel. Found dough to be a bit sticky and tough to form balls unless you chill it first for a bit or alternatively roll each ball in frys unsweetened cocoa. As forming. Adds a bit to calories but also to taste! Read More

I made these exactly as directed, including the optional chia seeds, and I really like them! This was my first time making "no bake" energy balls or bars, and it was so easy! I used my 1" cookie scoop to portion the dough, and I ended up with exactly 25 balls. I was wondering how to store these, but then I read the submitter's comments and noticed to store them in an airtight container in the fridge. Hoping the kids will like these for a quick breakfast . . . if not, more for me! Read More

Made these delicious snacks 10 times so far typically double the recipe and press into a parchment lined baking pan press hard and they stick together then score them into small squares freeze and they break apart easily. They are delicious! I have added peanuts almonds pumpkin seeds unsweetened coconut as well as mini chips depending on what I have on hand and the added nuts add a lot of crunch and texture. You will need to adjust the honey skimp on the honey and they will not hold together. Thank you for the recipe! Read More

These were so good!! I used chunky peanut butter and replaced the chips with raisins and pressed mixture down into a wax paper lined pan. I may sprinkle a little cinnamon or grated orange peel into the dough next time for more dimension. Read More

I live overseas so I can't find mini chocolate chips so I usually just put everything in a food processor. We also make our own homemade peanut butter and use half flax and half chia seeds. I ask my kids if they want balls bars or some other shape. Tons of different ways to do make this recipe but what I like is how easy it is and the right combination of the ingredients make the perfect taste. Read More

I have these in my house at all times since about two months ago when I found this recipe. I have not made them the same twice sometimes adding ingredients like ground quinoa and sunflower seeds but never straying from the outline. My toddler loves them as a snack and they have become my actual breakfast most days! Love them. Read More
