These no bake energy balls make the perfect breakfast, snack or even dessert. So delicious and only take 5 minutes and 5 ingredients to make!

My kids headed back to school this week, so it’s time to get back to the daily grind. My baby is almost 2 months now, so I’m definitely ready to start eating healthier and working out to start losing this baby weight. I don’t try to do any crazy diets while I’m nursing, but I do try to make healthier choices. I’m always on the look out for healthy snacks and these protein balls seem to be my go to when I’m craving something sweet. Not only are these peanut butter energy balls absolutely delicious, they’re a great source of protein. I love to grab them on the go when headed out or when I need a quick boost of energy in the afternoon. Much healthier than grabbing a candy bar ;)

MY OTHER RECIPES

These no bake energy bites are so easy to make and will come together in minutes. I like to start with these 5 base ingredients: peanut butter, oats, flaxseed, honey and chocolate chips. There are so many ways to customize these energy bites to your taste. You’ll simply mix the ingredients all together and then roll into balls. I like to place them in the freezer so they hold their shape. Then I put them in a zip top bag and store them in the freezer for when I need something quick to grab. My husband and kids love these too, which is a plus!

  1. I’ve been eating these daily for a few years, and I love them! My recipe has the exact same ingredients but slightly different measurements. I make them each Sunday and freeze them 2 at a time in snack sized ziploc bags. It’s perfect for grabbing when I need a snack during the week! I’ve been seeing them lately on Pinterest called Boobie Balls because they’re supposed to be good for breast health and milk production!

  2. My son was wanting to make a treat yesterday so we tried these and they were a hit! Thank you for sharing!
