Energy Balls

Recently I made some super yummy energy balls.  The recipe was provided by a friend of mine and is so easy to make.

Grab yourself a bowl and a few healthy ingredients and you will have a yummy snack that really does make you feel better.

Everything you need for a ball of goodness

1 cup Rolled Oats
1/2 cup Natural Peanut Butter (from the healthfood section)
1/2 cup Flaxseeds (Flaxseed meal can be used as well)
1 tbsp Chia Seeds (Black or White)
1/3 cup Rice Malt Syrup or Honey
1/2 cup Coconut
1 tsp Vanilla Essense
1/2 cup Craisins
1/2 cup Dairy Free Choc Chips (from the healthfood section)

Mix all ingredients and place in the fridge to cool for approx 1 hour.
With slightly wet hand, rolls into 20c piece balls and store in a airtight container in the fridge.

Makes: 35
Approx Calories: 61 per ball

These are perfect as a snack, my whole family love them.

Enjoy

Variations:
You can add more oats however you will need to add more liquid to bind.  You can either add more peanut butter, rice malt syrup/honey or more vanilla. 
You can also add regular choc chips if you dont want to use the dairy free variety.
