Classic Energy Balls

These little energy balls are perfect to fuel your gas tank to keep you going in between meals. They are a great energy source providing you with protein, fibre and essential omega fats! 


This recipe is quick and easy, in fact it only takes about 10 min. They are a great convenient snack and making double or even triple batches to store in the freezer makes it that much more convenient! 


They are also very flexible for ingredients to your preference of taste or food values. For example they can be made a nut free ball by using tahini butter instead of peanut butter, or a vegan ball by using agave instead of honey. Also if you wanted to you can add nuts or dried fruit or chocolate chips, its up to you! :)
