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…..so baking healthy concoctions it is! Healthy and delicious energy balls!

 

Aren’t they pretty?

Ingredients:

 

 

* 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!)

 

Directions:

 

* 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

 

Balls!

 

* place on parchment paper and store in fridge!

 

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

 

Happy weekend!
