Almond Butter Energy Balls
Workouts at CompleteBURN mean serious business so it's important to fuel properly before and after exercise. I am often on the go so I am looking for quick and easy things I can take with me. Energy balls are fantastic because they are simple to make, store easily in the fridge or freezer, and are portable!
-Angela of WholeHealthHabits
My base recipe is:
-1.5 cup of almond butter (or no sugar added peanut or cashew butter if you wish)
-1 cup oats (substitute for your favorite chopped nut if grain free or on Whole30- almonds, cashews, walnuts work great!)
-1/2 cup ground flax seed
-1/2 cup chia
-2 tsp vanilla
-1 tsp cinnamon
-pinch of salt
-1/3 cup raw honey (only if you must- omit the natural sweetener if you can!)
Roll into one inch size balls. You can encrust them if you desire with your choosing- flax, chia, hemp seeds, chopped nuts, coconut are my favorites! Store in an air tight container for fridge or freezer. A great on the go snack, pre or post workout fuel, or pair it with a banana or a boiled egg for a rounded breakfast!
