Peanut Butter Balls: The Trishabelle Special
It's a big day; it's the unveiling of the Peanut Butter Ball recipe!
I make these energy balls once a week--usually a triple batch on Sunday night. They are my breakfast most days and the perfect snack for on the go.
I buy most of the ingredients in bulk from Whole Foods. The peanut butter choice can make a huge difference since it is really what holds everything together. I usually go with the Whole Foods 365 Organic Peanut Butter Spread. Keyword: Spread.
Grab a bowl, some measuring cups, and a mixing spoon. Combine the following ingredients and mix away. Feel free to use an electric mixer if you prefer.
• 1 cup oatmeal
• 1/3 cup almond flour
• 1/4 cut shredded coconut flakes
• 1/4 cup chia seed
• 1/2 cup flaxseed meal
• 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
• 1/2 cup peanut butter
• 1 tablespoon light agave
Now, roll mixture into 20 balls (1 tbsp each).
Like I mentioned earlier, your peanut butter choice is key. If you feel that your mixture isn't sticking together, you add some more agave, peanut butter, or even some almond milk.
The very, very important last step is to put them in the freezer! And, then ENJOY! :)
