These quick and easy ENERGY BALLS are moist, chewy, and dense and are made without dates! Crafted with good ingredients like oats, dehydrated banana, chia seeds and peanut butter, they are the perfect guilt-free snack to have on hand for when you need a quick burst of goodness.  

Energy Balls

These Energy Balls are hands-down my favorite snack for anytime of the day. Unless you count my addiction to a good square or two of dark chocolate and, in that case, it is a tie!

The secret to these energy balls is dehydrated banana. Because they are date free, the banana gives them extra chewiness that may otherwise be lacking (and makes them taste divine!). They are also full of protein, active honey, good fats and slow releasing carbohydrates. Be prepared to become addicted!

These energy balls are also super easy to make. You can make them in big batches and they will keep up to 3 months – but trust me they wont last that long.

Tips

  • Use a good all-natural and smooth peanut butter. For the best results, use smooth peanut butter that is 100% peanuts. Some have added oil and salt! You can sub chunky also if preferred.
  • Do not add in too much liquid. Add in the water slowly to make your energy balls the perfectly chewy and dense. Sometimes you won’t need the whole amount of water depending on how runny your peanut butter and honey is.
  • Liquid. You can sub in nut milks if you prefer, but they taste great with water.
  • Sweetener. If you don’t want to use honey, you can substitute this with whatever sweetener you use (monk fruit, stevia etc), you may just need a touch more water.
  • Add ins. Feel free to add in any other dried fruits, nuts or chocolate! Make them yours!

You can also freeze them!

We love multiplying this recipe to have a batch always ready to go in the freezer. Pack them in your lunch bag for a great 3pm snack or post workout bite. They can be kept in the freezer for up to 6 months. Transfer to a freezer-safe bag or container.
