Thriving Recipe: Peanut Butter Energy Balls
These yummy peanut butter balls are a recipe I created for Pavel during Christmas. I was looking for a delicious treat that would also be hardy. These loaded balls were perfect! And the best part is the ingredients in this recipe are flexible. If you want it a little sweeter, increase the honey and peanut butter. If you don’t like coconut, swap it out for oats or more almonds. They are perfect for a party dessert, quick snack, or energy boost before endurance workouts. (Running, hiking, cross country skiing, biking, etc.) Enjoy! Ingredients: ½ cup ground almonds or almond flour ½ cup coconut flakes ½ cup peanut butter ½ cup ground flax seed ⅓ cup raw honey 1 tablespoon chia seeds 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Directions: Step 1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Puse until well blended. Cover and chill dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Step 2. Remove dough from the refrigerator; roll into balls, about 1 inch in diameter.
