Chocolate Chip Almond Energy Balls

Hey guys!  Thanks for stopping by the blog today.  How is your week going?

Just a quick post today, I wanted to pop in to share a super fast and delicious snack recipe with you.  These little energy balls were kind of an on the fly recipe idea that ended up amazing.  The whole family loved them and we polished off the first batch in about 5 minutes.

They are super easy to make, requiring only six ingredients, including the chocolate chips.  Also, who doesn’t love a no bake treat during the summer?

Chocolate Chip Almond Energy Balls

Makes 9 balls

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 4 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1-2 tablespoons chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate chips)

Directions: Mix all ingredients, except chocolate chips, in a bowl until well combined.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Using hands, roll into 9 balls.  They maybe a little crumbly when rolling, but will hold their shape well after spending a little time in the fridge.  Keep leftovers refrigerated in a covered container.

Let me know if you give them a try.  Hope you have a great day!

  1. Okay, I need to make these tomorrow! I need that extra little boost of energy to get through the day, but do not want coffee and often crave just “a bit” of chocolate. I think these would be so perfect for my little one to gobble up after swim class, too!
