Peanut Butter Energy Balls

Peanut Butter Energy Balls

I set out to make my own Energy Balls when I noticed I was spending money on these delicious snacks for no reason when they are super easy to make and not to mention a lot more economical. These are perfect to snack on between meals or before a workout as they provide the perfect energy boost and are packed with nutrients!

Peanut Butter: High in protein, low carb
Oats: Antioxidant, High in fiber = full faster & good for the gut, can help lower cholesterol
Pumpkin Seeds: Antioxidant, High in Magnesium (blood pressure & sugar regulator, High in fiber)
Sunflower Seeds: High in Vitamin E (antioxidant) & Magnesium
Shredded Coconut: High in Saturated Fat (can help raise good HDL Cholesterol in the body)
Honey: Antioxidant, antibacterial
Dark Chocolate Chips: High in antioxidants, Higher dark chocolate concentration = High in flavanols which aid in heart health
Seat Salt: Essential for maintaining electrolyte balance



1 Cup Oats (large flakes works best)
1/2 Cup Natural Peanut Butter (no salt or sugar added)
1/4 Cup Pumpkin Seeds
1/4 Cup Sunflower Seeds
1/4 Cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut 
1/4 Cup Fresh Natural Honey
1/4 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips
1/2 TSP Sea Salt 


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a bowl and knead together (works better if you use your hands) until it is all incorporated and starts sticking together
  2. Start forming balls that are about 1.5 inches in diameter by squeezing the mixture from one hand to the next. Makes about 14 balls.
  3. Can be enjoyed immediately or stored in the fridge - they will harden a bit in the fridge but this will make it easier to enjoy later
