Full of many healthy goodies, peanut butter energy balls are exactly what you want to be snacking on!
Introducing – The easiest snack you’ll ever make! Made with all healthy ingredients and refined- sugar free. These energy balls will satisfy all your late afternoon cravings.
This same recipe exists already on the blog, deep down in the archives. Actually one of the first things I ever shared here on The Well Floured Kitchen. I had made square energy balls, which is still an option. Yet, most people are looking for round energy balls, so I thought it might be time for an update.
I did change one thing about them. The amount of honey has been reduced to 1/3 a cup. I was so happy to find that they are still sweet enough to appease my nagging sweet tooth. Also, did I mention the hint of chocolate? I used a couple tablespoons of my Navitas cacao powder – my favorite and I highly recommend it. But these can definitely be made with any cocoa powder you have available.
They are so simple to make, literally dump all the ingredients in the food processor and give it a whirl. They will form a dough in about a minute, then roll them into balls. Little kids can easily help with this recipe, they will especially love rolling the balls. Like playdough that you can eat 😉
Really the only downside is how quickly they disappear! It makes about 30, depending on the size of the balls. I use this 3/4 ounce scooper, which is about a tablespoon and a half. With 6 of us, that is less than 4 each! I need to start making a double batch.
Store them in the refrigerator, and grab one whenever the craving hits!
