Easy No-Bake Energy Ball Recipe

finished energy balls 

Everybody wants to have a quick snack on hand. Even better is a snack that’s also healthy and will also give you that much-needed burst of energy mid-morning or afternoon. I've come up with a yummy recipe that's a big hit in this household. It's a bit of a mash-up of two recipes I found online: Roots and Rosemary and California Walnuts.

The hardest thing about making these energy balls is getting the ingredients out of your pantry. (Or maybe it’s having to wait 30 minutes to sample your first one.) Not only that, but it’s very forgiving and easily adaptable. Make it once and you’ll want to double your next recipe. As written, this recipe makes about twenty balls.

A few energy ball ingredients.



I’ve made it with raisins, cherries, and bananas. All dried, of course, and all were equally delicious. Blueberries would be a great choice, too. Or how about apricot?
