Energy Balls

I am currently tapering (Chicago marathon is this Sunday!) and so I am not doing my normal workouts which means I have even MORE time on my hands… baking healthy concoctions it is! Healthy and delicious energy balls!


Aren’t they pretty?




* 1/2 cup of almond butter

* 3 tablespoons of honey (or 4 dates, which is what I chose to do)

* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

* 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

* 1/3 cup ground flaxseed meal

* 1/4 cup rolled oats

* 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

* 1/4 cup finely chopped nut (pecan, almond, hazelnut, whatever!)




* Ground the dates and nuts together


Dates and nuts!


* then combine with everything!


Everything together in one bowl.

Mixed up.


* roll together into balls, dipping them in to coconut




* place on parchment paper and store in fridge!


Voila! A great source of healthy fats, protein, and fiber!


Happy weekend!
