With rolled oats, protein powder, peanut butter and a touch of honey, these energy balls will keep you satisfied for hours!I’ve decided that my life mission is to bring energy balls to the world! If any of you happen to know what C does for a living or who he works for, this statement is that much funnier. For the rest of you…keep guessing.

But for real, I am astounded when I meet someone who hasn’t discovered the glory and convenience that is the energy ball. So much so that I have a speech memorized for when I come across the rare person who has yet to be convinced.

I’ll spare you from hearing it.

With rolled oats, protein powder, peanut butter and a touch of honey, these energy balls will keep you satisfied for hours!I cannot accept the idea that someone could NOT like energy balls. Unless they’re one of those annoying people who “doesn’t like healthy food” (get over it), the only reason I can think of for why someone might not love EBs is because they have yet to find their flavor combo.

This is the reason why I am always trying to come up with new, creative flavors. From almond joy, to gingerbread and of course those blueberry muffin energy balls, I am absolutely convinced that there is a flavor out there for everyone.

The other week my friend Cat was over and the topic of energy balls came up. Obvi. Because when am I not chatting about energy balls? Like C (my C, not Cat) Cat is not a big chocolate fan. It took some digging but it turns out that oatmeal raisin is her jam. So I set out to convince another being of the world that energy balls are gods gift to the earth.

With rolled oats, protein powder, peanut butter and a touch of honey, these energy balls will keep you satisfied for hours!I’ve since made this recipe twice. Once with Oatmeal Raisin, and once with Oatmeal Chocolate Chip and both are BOMB.

I don’t discriminate between raisin lovers and chocolate lovers. 

But I do discriminate between those who love energy balls and those who claim to not like them. I prefer to pretend the latter just don’t exist! Life just makes more sense that way…

    I loved this recipe. I actually doubled the chia seeds and added coconut instead of chocolate chips. It worked great!

    So delicious and great. I like your recipe. Both delicious and good for health. I did it yesterday for my son. My son loves this dish. He ate it all. Your recipe works. I want to add more eggs to the recipe, is that good? How do you think?

    I am a fan of no-bake meals and I cannot just let this one slip by. A surprisingly delicious mix of raisins, chocolate chips and peanut butter and it’s perfect for my breakfast. I can prepare it by Sunday and have something ready to eat before or after daily workout.

    If i’m going to like an energy ball recipe I need something without nuts (not necessarily because I’m allergic but I just can’t stand the taste and smell – makes me want to throw up), any good ideas?
