Snack Balls

I had a request, which was awesome – I loved the feedback, for the recipe on one of the pictures I posted on my last blog entry about the FoodSaver.

Normally I always have snack balls in the freezer or fridge for a quick go-to-snack. In our house we eat them at all times throughout the day. For breakfast when we aren’t starving but need a little something, as a snack in between meals, a pick me up before a workout, or a snack before bedtime after dinner.

I have a variety of recipes I like to use to constantly mix things up so we don’t get bored with these. Don’t worry, of course I’m going to share them all with you guys because let’s be honest, that’s the purpose of this blog! To share all the good stuff I come across and for us to grow together 🙂

So, with all that said, here are my favorite recipes!


No-Bake Energy Bites

(With these I like to mix up the nut butter in the ingredient list. I make both almond butter versions which are my favorite and cashew butter versions which are my hubby’s favorite)

1 cup dry oats (I like to use gluten free oats)

1/3 cup coconut flakes (I like to use shredded, unsweetened)

1/2 cup nut butter (almond, cashew, pecan)

1/4 cup honey or maple syrup (I prefer honey)

2 Tbsp. chocolate chips or cacao nibs

1 Tbsp. chia seeds

1 tsp. vanilla extract

*Instructions: Stir all ingredients together in a large bowl until thoroughly mixed. Then place in refrigerator for a half hour to hour to harden the mixture to assist in making the balls stick together. Once chilled, roll into a ball size shape of your choice. 


Double Chocolate Energy Bites

1 cup almond butter (or other nut butter)

1.5 cups unsweetened shredded coconut

8-10 dried black figs, stems removed

½ cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chip (minis) or dark chocolate chips

¼ cup flaxseed meal (optional)

4 tablespoons raw honey

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1-2 scoops protein powder of choice (optional)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

pinch of salt

*Instructions: Add all ingredients (except chocolate chips) to food processor and mix until figs are completely broken down. Then add chocolate chips into the bowl, mix, and shape into balls.

**Note: These are great for satisfying your sweet tooth instead of reaching for a cookie, piece of cake, or bowl of ice cream.
