Lara’s Energy Balls

Many of you have asked for this recipe which I reference many times in our book. Here you go, enjoy!

Lara's Energy Balls

Combine the following into a large bowl:
2 C. Oatmeal
3/4 C. Chocolate Chips (I either use chocolate or white chocolate)
1 C. Peanut Butter
1 C. Ground Flaxseed
2/3 C. Honey
2 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 C. Raisins
1/2 C. Craisins

Directions: After thoroughly mixed, use a 1″ cookie scoop to form balls on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Get your hands slightly wet and roll each scoop to make completely round balls. Put baking sheet in the freezer until all balls are completely frozen. Remove from sheet and store in gallon-sized ziploc bag in freezer. It’s a great grab-and-go breakfast or snack! Enjoy!

*Instead of lining a baking sheet with parchment paper, I use the underside of the plastic lid that came with my 9×13 baking dish. This makes for quick and easy cleanup, and the balls don’t stick to the surface after freezing.

*You don’t have to freeze your balls when storing–you could store them in the fridge–but I find that I enjoy them more when they are cold and it forces me to eat them slower 😉

*This recipe makes a big batch. If you plan to tweak the recipe, cut the recipe in half the first few times, until you find the combination you like best.

*Remember, if you don’t like some of the above ingredients, omit or swap them out with something else! PWF is all about finding what works for you, so don’t be afraid to tweak the above to your liking 🙂
