D’s No Bake Energy Balls

Okay so another friend of mine is an amazing cook and is always sending awesome treats our way! Supporting my clean eating, he shared this sweet treat and I think these are mouth watering! Of course any of you who have ventured to the baking section on my blog will see I love to bake and I love making cake pops for my kiddos and their friends. So I took D’s recipe and added a little twist. Both recipes are attached 🙂

Ingredients
1 cup oats
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla

Directions
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Roll into 26 1 inch balls and refrigerate.

To make cake pops
Use 1/4 cup dark chocolate chopped finely (instead of 1/2 cup). Melt 1 cup of dark chocolate. Dip top of stick in chocolate and insert into the balls about 1/2 way. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes. Then dip the ball quickly into melted chocolAte and let the chocolate drop off. (I usually tap the bottom of the stick with the back of a spoon to get as much chocolate off as possible. Place in fridge to harden. Add a drop of melted chocolate to the top if you wish and add a nut or dried fruit. This would make a fun and impressive clean dessert for friends and family. Enjoy. Id love to see your creative ideas.
