Choc Chip Peanut Butter Energy Balls



My healthy peanut butter energy balls are a great super food snack. With peanut butter being a healthy fat and the oats being a healthy protein. I am obsessed with making these, I am always making a batch to snack on throughout the week. If you love peanut butter and chocolate you will love these. They are super healthy and not too naughty for you, with not much sugar and lots of protein to fuel you. They are perfect if you want a protein packed treat which is easy to whip up, delicious to eat and a lot healthier than a chocolate bar. Hope you love them as much as I do!

The recipe only requires five ingredients however you can swap the flax seeds for chia seeds if you wish and add additional nuts for topping.

Ingredients:
Peanut Butter - 114g
Oats - 85g
Honey - 255g
Choc Chip - 20g
Flax Seeds - 43g 

If adding chocolate chips to your peanut butter energy balls try and go for a dark chocolate. This will be better for you than normal chocolate and contains fewer nasties. A lot of people don't like dark chocolate but if you can train yourself to like it you'll soon love it more than normal chocolate. And with the chocolate containing a lot less sugar you can eat more!





Start by adding all of the ingredients to a mixing bowl. You will need to make sure that you mix all of them in really well (you don't want to end up with an energy ball with no chocolate). This may become rather hard when you've added the honey, so don't concentrate too much on making sure everything is mixed perfectly.

It doesn't matter which peanut butter you use it is up to personal preference. In our recipe be prefer to use a smooth peanut butter as we are adding addition seeds and oats to the mixture to create texture. However if you are a huge lover of peanut butter then you might want to try out a crunchy one. This is also the same for the flax seeds if  you want to try something different go ahead.

The mixture should make ten energy balls. When you are happy with how it is mixed divide into five equal helpings and roll into a tidy little ball. This may be rather sticky - but you can always roll the balls with some extra oats before baking. Bake for seven minutes at 200 degrees in the centre of the oven and cool for thirty minutes before you enjoy!




I hope you enjoy making your own choc chip peanut butter energy balls!

Lots of Love
