WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE NO-BAKE, NO-COOK OATS ENERGY BALLS
Flaxseed meal: Flaxseed Meal has a high amount of dietary fiber. It’s also a powerful natural cholesterol controller. I buy Bob’s Redmill Flaxseed meal. https://www.bobsredmill.com/flaxseed-meal.html
Chia seed: Chia seeds contain quercetin, an antioxidant that can reduce your risk of developing several health conditions, including heart disease. The seeds also high in fiber, which can help to lower high blood pressure and, in turn, reduce your risk of developing heart disease. Chia seeds are high in fiber.
Sesame seed: Sesame seeds are a good source of healthy fats, protein, B vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants may aid blood sugar control, combat arthritis pain, and lower cholesterol.
Almond Butter: Almond butter contains protein, good monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, and contains the powerful antioxidant vitamin E, bone-building magnesium, potassium, and vitamin B6
STEPS TO MAKE OATS & NUT BUTTER ENERGY BITES
For the exact recipe see the recipe card below:
STEP 1: MIX the Ingredients
In a medium bowl, stir together Instant oats, flaxseed meal, chia seed, sea salt, and almond butter and mix until combined.
STEP 2: ROLL into balls
Grease your hands with water. Take a spoonful of the dough between your palms and roll into a golf sized ball. You will get about 15 to 18 balls.
STEP 3: FREEZE the balls
Place the balls on a cookie sheet and freeze for 30 minutes.
STEP 4: MELT the chocolate
Melt chocolate in the microwave or stovetop.
STEP 5: DIP the energy bites into melted white chocolate
Dip the energy bites into melted chocolate and place it back onto the tray. Place in fridge for 20 minutes to harden!
TIPS & TRICKS
The easiest way to make the energy balls mixture sticky is by Adding a bit more nut butter.
Time crunched? Press the mixture into a square baking dish to make flat energy bars instead of round energy balls.
Store the oats and nuts energy balls in the fridge: They stay fresh in a sealed container or bag in the fridge for a week. In the freezer: Freeze energy bites on a cookie sheet for an hour before transferring them to Ziplock freezer bags.
Not a fan of almonds? Switch to peanut butter
Crunchy nut butter gives you a better texture.
Add some honey if you like your oats energy bites to be a tad sweeter.
