No Bake Energy Balls

No Bake Energy Balls are packed with peanut butter, oats, chocolate chips, flax and chia seeds. 

I have been really low on energy lately. I think part of it is just winter. I feel winter pretty hard, the lack of sunshine and outdoor activity really affects my energy level! I've also been eating pretty badly (not so great on the new years resolutions), and when I do that, my energy suffers as well. For me, eating healthy things like these no bake energy balls during the week is all about prep.

If I have time to prep on Sunday, I have a fighting chance! If not, you can bet I'll struggle to eat healthy for most meals. One of my favorite things to prep are these No Bake Energy Bites!

They are packed of protein and nutrition. I eat them for breakfast (in the car, of course) and for a quick energy burst during the day! 

This recipe is actually a modified version of another recipe I've shared, these Peanut Butter Honey Energy Balls. I've made these no less than a hundred times at this point, and I started making small modifications. I omitted the dried apricots and swapped them for mini chocolate chips.

I packed them with extra protein powder, chia seeds and flax seeds. And, I learned over time that I really prefer to quickly run the ingredients through a food processor to make the energy balls a bit smoother in texture!

The food processor that I used was the Hamilton Beach Professional 14 Cup Dicing Food Processor. The is the granddaddy of all food processors! It has a lot of cool features, including an adjustable slicing blades with 14 different thickness settings.

Think super thin potato slices for homemade chips, or easy salsa where all of the ingredients are diced to similar sizes. This food processor can do that no problem! It also has an adjustable feeding tube so you don't have to pre-cut the ingredients down to size.  You can purchase yours on Amazon here!

Instant Pot Greek Yogurt - Blackberry Babe

Thursday 7th of September 2017

[…] I love to make my yogurt into Instant Pot Greek Yogurt Parfaits, adding a drizzle of honey, sliced almonds, blueberries and fresh strawberries. But, I figure everyone already knows how they like their yogurt, so you do you! Regardless, I love this little video showing the possibilities. It just makes sense to store this homemade greek yogurt in mason jars, right? Premaking parfaits and keeping them in the fridge is such an easy way to breakfast prep. If you need another easy breakfast or snack, I’d highly recommend my No Bake Energy Balls! […]
