Energy Ball Recipe

Really easy energy ball recipe with chocolate chips and hidden flax seeds and healthy. Kids and adults love these no bake energy balls.

energy ball recipeI remember making a version of these in High School for a bake sale and although this energy ball recipe technically required no baking at all they were a hit. There are of course several versions of what you can include and/or omit to make these energy balls but at the end of the day it starts out with a few simple ingredients.

I love goodies that stick with you, that my kids love, and don’t require an oven. Especially during the Summer that’s the last thing I want to turn on.

  • Energy bites are great as a snack before or after a soccer game, when you’re back from the gym, or just as a snack. You can “hide” good things for you inside too like wheat germ and flax seeds and your kids will never know! 😉

No bake energy bites

The ingredients are as follows. Now keep in mind if you’d rather leave out the flax seeds or just don’t chocolate chips in them just adjust accordingly.

Here’s the energy ball recipe you can try and things you’ll need:

  • Oats – not instant
  • Peanut butter
  • Chocolate chips
  • Flax seed
  • Wheat germ
  • Honey

These balls don't stick no matter that I followed the recipe exactly. I even tried adding a bit more honey, but still not sticking. Now what?
