Ingredients

  • Oats – Whole oats are a great source of energy. Since they are a whole grain, they take a while for the body to break down and digest. This means that they give you longer lasting energy. Who doesn’t love that?!
  • Powdered Milk – I know that not everyone has powdered milk lying around, so no stress if you don’t have this in your cupboards. You could opt to make the balls without it, swap it for some actual milk (try a tbsp) and additional oats (to absorb the additional moisture), or add it your favorite protein powder. You can play around with the measurements to find a consistency that works for you.
  • Honey – Honey is a natural sweetener that is much better for your health than regular sugar. It contains tons of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that promote your overall well being!
  • Peanut butter – I rarely purchase natural peanut butter. Because I buy peanut butter for my husband too, it is always chunky peanut butter with added sugars. (you know Jif, Skippy, or Store brand). So, maybe that’s why my energy balls are so sweet. But, if you don’t like them as sweet as I do, you can definitely use natural peanut butter. There really isn’t much difference in calories between natural and sugar peanut butter.
