Energy Balls

This is my favorite quick healthy and super easy dessert. I make these when ever I want a treat, but I still am being somewhat health conscious. They are delicious and taste like cookie dough, yet are much better for you than cookie dough. My boyfriend has me make them for him every time I'm staying at his house.


1 1/4 cup oatmeal
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon

You through these in a bowl. Mix them up. Roll them into balls and then through them into the freezer to make them extra good. 

Almost anything can be substituted and you can add anything you like. I like them with a little less honey and peanut butter. It makes them a lot harder to roll up but they taste pretty similar and are much healthier that way. You can also add flaxseed, bran, or anything else to it.

These are the best because you can always have the ingredients on hand, as well as they last a really long time in the freezer.

  1. I love no bake recipes. I have all these ingredients on hand; I think I'll make these tomorrow morning. Thanks for sharing this.
