energy balls 15 varieties

For years I sat back and watched friends, family, Pinteresters, bloggers, grandmothers, YOU NAME IT, make energy balls while I had 0% interest in taking part in the trend. I figured if I wanted a cookie, I’d make cookies. If I wanted granola bars, I’d make granola bars. Why fuss with forming dough into finnicky little balls? It seemed like more work than payoff.

But then, all of a sudden, I had the urge to make some energy balls and, with one bite, I knew exactly what the big deal was! Energy balls are amazing! They’re not like cookies or granola bars…. they’re in a totally unique category of their own and they’re delicious!

I went to the opposite extreme and before I knew it, I had made 15 different flavours.

Go big or go home, right?

And to my great delight and surprise… they really aren’t much work at all!

  1. I had given up on the energy ball craze because they all seemed to contain nuts and we have nut allergies at our house. I hadn’t thought of using seed butter though! Now to find a seed butter that doesn’t smell like peanut butter- maybe tahini? They also seem like they would be a good school snack.
