Peanut Butter Energy Balls

Peanut Butter Energy Balls

So after the success I had with my homemade oat milk recipe, I wanted to see what else could be done with ground oats.

If you’ve ever had a “Bounce Ball”, then you’ll see that this is what I was attempting to recreate.  Almost a cookie dough like texture but with none of the artificial sugars or sweeteners present.

This recipe cost me £1.23 to make 12 servings and took me only 15 minutes to make with the supermarket equivalent coming in at £1.69 a serving.

I’d love to hear what optionals you would add to this recipe, otherwise I hope you enjoy this one right here.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup oats

2/3 cup peanut butter

1tsp vanilla extract

2 teaspoons melted coconut oil

2 teaspoons coconut sugar

Optionals:

Chia seeds

Flax seeds

Sub oats for almond flour

Sub coconut sugar agave/honey/maple

Psyllium husk

Method:

  1. Add oats to blender and blend until a fine powder
  2. Add in peanut butter, vanilla extract, coconut oil and sugar and mix on high speed until combined
  3. Using your hands, roll the mixture into little balls- FYI I got 10 out of these measurements
  4. Store in airtight container and jobs a good’n

As always, peace to the planet and peace to your pockets.

  1. Oh I feel I’m going to sound overly nerdy here… So I love gaming and the elder scrolls video game series is one of my favourites. So much so I got a cook book that tries to recreate the food from the game. Anyway one of these is called a Honey Nut Treat and the recipe is very similar to these except instead of vanilla its finely chopped raisins, dates & cinnamon.

    Anyway would highly recommend as these are super filling and easy to make!

    1. You’re absolutely right….. you do sound overly nerdy here 🤓🤪….. the chopped raisins, dates and cinnamon sounds like a winning combination. I must try this next time!

      Ps. I’m currently playing Plants vs Zombies, plant power 💪🏼 🌱
