Energy Balls

I am a self proclaimed snacker. I like to snack and I LOVE sweet things!! These energy balls make the perfect snack and will satisfy those sweet cravings. Chocolatey goodness, peanut butter, crunchy seeds, chewy raisins...yes please! I try to have a stock of these in my freezer at all times!

You can adapt this recipe to include whatever your heart desires! This batch I did half peanut butter and half almond butter, added some chopped dried figs and substituted the cranberries for raisins because that's what I happened to have in my pantry.  There is no right or wrong ingredient to add to an energy ball as long as it is something your into!

White Water Energy Balls


  • 1 cup sunflower seeds, toasted
  • 1 cup sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup cocoa
  • 2 cups peanut butter (or favorite nut butter)
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 ½ cups toasted coconut (for coating) – optional


  1. Put everything except coconut in a large bowl
  2. Mix all ingredients together well with your hands.  You may need a bit more honey to hold it together
  3. Roll ¼ cup scoops of dough into balls and then roll them in the toasted coconut
  4. Store in Freezer

  1. Yum! That sounds good. Have you ever made granola? I'm thinking about trying my hand at it to eat with my yogurt and fruit for breakfast at work.


  2. I have never made granola but it is on my list of recipes to try so I will let you know if I find a good one!
