Energy Balls – My Favorite Homemade Snack

I feel like I am always talking about how busy everyone is, but it’s true, isn’t it? Especially this last quarter of the year.

All of the upcoming holiday events, busier work schedules, and social engagements make the tail end of the year purely chaotic.

Busy days require consistent fuel for optimum productivity. When I have the urge to grab that 2 pm sugary snack, that’s when energy balls are the perfect alternative.

I’d rather chomp into homemade energy bites than a packaged snack when possible. Since I have a pretty wicked food intolerance to almonds, it’s nice to control the ingredients with homemade snacks.

Bonus points for no oven required.

Kids love these double chocolate energy balls, too. If you’re looking for lunch box additions, after school fuel, or something to snack on during practice, definitely consider this recipe.

Another occasion where I plan to have energy balls within reach is during Christmas cookie baking.

Resisting cookie dough or hot and fresh cookies straight from the oven is quite the challenge when you have a sweet tooth the size of mine.

Perhaps it will help to grab a chocolatey ball instead of a super sugary cookie.

Weighing in at about a smidge over 100 calories per ball, I know these bites are a better option than a lot of other snacks that I tend to grab.

Others suggest breaking up the bites and adding them to Greek yogurt for breakfast. That sounds super tasty to me and, I will definitely try it.

If you’re looking for a tasty snack that’s dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan, try these irresistible protein peanut butter cups. What a tasty, no-bake way to get some extra protein!
