Chocolate Energy Balls



What to do when the kids are begging for homemade cookies and it’s too hot to handle the oven? We turn to our no-bake goodies to curb the craving. We call them ‘Chocolate Energy Balls’ in the g&b households, which goes down a lot better than ‘Gluten-Free, Healthy Oat & Nut Balls,’ which is what they really are 😏. (It’s all in the marketing 😉). These come together in about the same time it takes to put sunscreen on three squirming children. 🐙🦎🐍. They travel well and make great picnic, lunch or beach treats too!


Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats

  • 1/4 cup hazelnuts, smashed into small bits

  • 1/2 cup almond butter

  • 1/2 cup chia seeds

  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

  • 2 tablespoons raw cocoa

  • 1/3 cup raw honey

  • 1 tsp vanilla

Put all the ingredients into a large bowl and combine with your hands until everything is evenly distributed. Use a tablespoon to measure out the dough portions. Use your hands to press and form the mixture into balls. Refrigerate the leftovers!
