peanut butter chocolate chip energy balls (low sugar)


  • Author: Jessica Penner, RD
  • Yield: 18-20 energy balls

Description

A no-bake, no-fuss delicious snack recipe with the best flavour combo: pb & chocolate chip!


Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats
  • ⅓ cup peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp corn syrup
  • 2 tbsp ground flax
  • 2 tbsp whey isolate
  • 2 tbsp mini chocolate chips

Instructions

By hand:

  • Add all ingredients (except the water) to a bowl and stir to combine.
  • Using a small cookie scoop, scoop out and form into a ball. Don’t try to squish the dough too hard with your hands. The recipe is light on the sticky syrup so you need to gently coax them into a ball shape. Now is not the time to be a perfectionist in making the spheres!
  • Add water, 1 tsp at a time, if the mixture is too crumbly to stick together at all.
  • Allow to firm up in the fridge.

With food processor:

  • Measure the oats into the food processor and turn on high. Process until oats are nearly a flour consistency.
  • Add the rest of ingredients to a bowl (except the water) and stir to combine.
  • Using a small cookie scoop, scoop out and form into a ball. Don’t try to squish the dough too hard with your hands. The recipe is light on the sticky syrup so you need to gently coax them into a ball shape. Now is not the time to be a perfectionist in making the spheres!
  • Add water, 1 tsp at a time, if the mixture is too crumbly to stick together at all.
  • Allow to firm up in the fridge.

Notes

*Adding 2 tbsp of whey isolate will add 0.5g protein to each energy ball.
