We're talking a real chef, in a monster venue and a finger-licking, HEALTHY recipe.
I bring you…..
Kim's Energy Balls!as in balls that will give you energy and not vice versa - although she does cook for the London Knights hockey team - so there's probably some truth to the second version as well.
Health food is foreign to me, so I had to hit Bulk Barn to get the ingredients.
You will need:
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup flax seeds
- 1/4 cup dried cranberries or raisins
- 1/4 cup almonds, pumpkin or sunflower seeds
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp hemp seeds
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup honey or nutella
Mix all ingredients together.
Then let sit in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Roll into balls and store in an airtight container.
These are FANTASTIC - and I'm a processed, over-sugared, junk food addict.
While I was rolling these into balls, Hubby cleaned out about 6 of them - so I think he agrees.
Kim, thank you very, very much for sharing your recipe with me (and my readers) and Doug - thanks for the hook-up!
Gotta go get some energy for my balls!
Oops, I mean get a ball of energy! lol
Have a great one!
