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. Sorry you couldn’t find that! If you search “energy balls” in the search engine on my site, you will get all the variations, while I work on sorting that out. I also have this mix and match recipe which makes it very easy and flexible for you to try various flavours!

  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.
