photo-1466027575040-12134f1397fa.jpgWho wants to bake in the middle of summer? Even if it’s been raining lately on the North Shore, no one wants to be slaving over a hot stove. No bake energy balls are great summer snacks to take with you on the road, to bring to your summer picnics, or a tasty afternoon snack to boost your energy.

How to make no bake energy balls: 

Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup of ground flax seed
  • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (or substitute carob chips or raisins)
  • 1/2 cup of crunchy peanut butter (or substitute with your favourite nut butter)
  • 1/3 cup of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Optional ingredients: toasted coconut, chia seeds, medjool dates, cinnamon.

Directions: 

  1. Combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix well.
  2. Grab a small portion of the mixture and knead it into a small bowl.
  3. Place your energy balls into a container and store in the fridge or freezer
  4. Pop one in your both when you need a boost of energy!
