Energy Ball Recipe

My new favorite snack is an energy ball. What is an energy ball? I am glad you asked! An energy ball is a small, bite sized snack that is packed with good stuff to help you have energy! If you are wanting to boost your milk supply, this recipe would be helpful and yummy! The best part about this recipe is, you can substitute anything you would like for any of the ingredients! The only thing you have to keep the same is the ratio of wet ingredients to dry ingredients.

What I like to use is sunflower seed butter (any nut butter can be used), honey, vanilla, oats, wheat germ, flax seed, and chocolate chips. Because everything is better when you add chocolate!

My recipe for energy balls (or cookies as Bunny calls them):

2 cups oats – I like to use regular oatmeal, not the quick serve kind

1 cup sunflower seed butter (any nut butter can be used)

1 cup wheat germ

1/2 cup flaxseeds (sometimes I grind them up before mixing, sometimes I leave them whole)

4 tsp vanilla (I like using homemade vanilla)

1 cup chocolate chips (or any kind of sweets you would like)

2/3 cups honey (the lighter the honey the sweeter it is)

If you are making these to help increase your milk supply I suggest adding some brewers yeast.

You can mix these ingredients however you like. I like to put the oats in first.

Then I add the sunflower seed butter, honey and vanilla.

Next, I add the flaxseed. This time they are whole.

I like to chop up my chocolate chips. I guess I could use mini chocolate chips instead, but when all I have in the cupboard is regular sized ones, I chop them up a bit.

Then I add in the chocolate chips.

Once I have all the ingredients in my bowl, I stir it. I don’t like to use an electric mixer for this. I prefer to stir it by hand.

Once everything is mixed together I use a scooper (mine is from pampered chef but I have seen similar ones in the stores) to scoop out balls. I use a big scooper for adult sized energy balls and a small scooper for Bunny sized energy balls. I like to put my energy balls on parchment paper on top of a cookie sheet. I put them in the refrigerator for at least an hour before I start eating them.
