Kick off the New Year right, with Megan’s healthy and tasty, grab-n-go treat— No Bake Energy Balls.  We suspect she created the recipe herself, but she won’t say.  Megan is all about quick, and easy-to-make energy boosting snacks that get you through your day now matter how you work or play.  She takes these along with her to the office, on a photo shoot, and with Charlie.  Where will you take yours? 

Ingredients

1/2 cup sunflower butter

1 heaping tablespoon coconut oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup dairy-free or regular chocolate chips

1/4 cup hemp seeds (available online or at a health food store)

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

dash of salt

 

Directions

Combine the sunflower butter, coconut oil, and vanilla extract in a pot over low heat until the ingredients are melted and mixed together.  Remove from the heat and let cool. 

In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and stir to mix until a soft dough forms. 

Spoon a small amount of the mixture into your hands and roll them it into a ball approximately 1-2 inches in diameter, depending on how big you’d like you’re energy balls to be.  To prevent the dough from melting, don’t over-handle it. 

Place balls on a cookie sheet or plate, and cover with plastic wrap.  Refrigerate overnight or until hard, and enjoy all week long! 

* Store in the refrigerator, and take them with you in a cooler bag so they won’t melt.
