No bake energy balls

Making no-bake energy balls is a fun and easy way for children to learn about healthy eating and discover new tastes. These delicious treats are packed with nutrients and can be made in minutes.
  • Prep time: 15 minutes
  • Chill time: 30 minutes
  • 150g rolled oats
  • 60g smooth peanut butter or almond butter
  • 60ml honey
  • 50g dark chocolate chips
  • 30g chia seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 30g shredded coconut (optional)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder (optional)

Mix Ingredients:

  • In a large bowl, combine the rolled oats, chia seeds, and dark chocolate chips.
  • In a separate smaller bowl, mix the peanut butter (or almond butter), honey, and vanilla extract until smooth.

Combine:

  • Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients. Stir well until everything is fully combined. If the mixture is too dry, add a bit more honey or a splash of milk.

Shape:

  • Scoop out small portions of the mixture and roll them into balls using your hands. Each ball should be about 2.5 cm in diameter.

Chill:

  • Place the energy balls on a tray lined with baking paper. Chill them in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to firm up.

Optional Coating:

  • For extra flavour and texture, roll the balls in shredded coconut or cocoa powder before chilling.

Enjoy:

  • Once firm, your energy balls are ready to eat. Store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
