I’ve been packing my son’s lunch since he began kindergarten last fall, and we were getting into a rut when I discovered how versatile energy balls can be. They pack a nutritional punch while still being a flavorful treat.
We enjoy using all three of the power foods pictured above: chia seeds, hemp seeds, and ground flax seeds, but you don’t need all three. You can choose your favorites and adjust them to your liking.
Once you add the honey, the mixture should come together nicely into a thick dough. We enjoy this recipe just as it is, but it’s very adaptable to your tastes! You can add raisins, mini chocolate chips, or even coconut flakes to the mix to change it up.
Scoop the balls onto a baking sheet covered in wax paper, cool them in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, and then transfer them to a sealed container.
