Energy Balls…a delicious and nutritious snack!

energy balls

One of my favorite snacks to eat are energy balls. These tasty little treats can satisfy a sweet craving, a hunger pang or even a quick breakfast on the go! The possibilities are endless really. You make any kind of energy balls you’d like! Chocolate, banana, chocolate-banana, coconut, cherry-vanilla, peanut butter, berry…or a combination of everything! A kitchen sink energy ball if you will! If you have a hard time figuring out which flavors blend well together, I’ve put a couple recipes together for you below.

Hope you enjoy them!
