Easy Gluten Free Energy Balls

, ,

Wanna talk about a snack that I can’t make fast enough? It’s these easy gluten free energy balls, and they taste like double chocolate chip cookie dough, you guys! SO. GOOD. I’ve tested and tweaked a bunch of different recipes, and this one is our family’s very favorite combo. This is a big recipe that makes around 36 energy balls, so feel free to cut it in half if you don’t need that many. I can barely get through 2-3 days with this amount, because our family goes through them so fast! It’s like dessert without it being dessert, and we love ’em.

A couple of recipe notes: We use mini chocolate chips for more even distribution. It’s a big deal. To us. 😉 If you’d like to omit the protein powder, that’s totally fine! Just cut back a bit on the honey and peanut butter so that the mixture doesn’t get gloopy. We use Orgain Chocolate Fudge protein powder because it is gluten free, vegan (no animal proteins) and organic, and it is gentle on tummies! Another thing to remember, if you need to eat GF, be sure to buy gluten free marked oats. Sometimes wheat and oat fields are grown in close proximity, and cross contamination can happen at that stage, even if “wheat” isn’t a listed ingredient in regular oats. Who knew?!

Easy Gluten Free Energy Balls

*this recipe makes approximately 36 energy balls, so cut in half if you don’t need that many. Our big family goes through them quickly, so I make a lot at a time!

DRY INGREDIENTS:
-2 C. GF old fashioned oats (we use Bob’s Red Mill)
-1 C. mini chocolate chips
-1/2 C. toasted chopped pecans
-4 T. or scoops of chocolate GF vegan protein powder (we use Orgain)
-2 T. GF chia seeds
-1 T. GF flax seeds

WET INGREDIENTS:
-2 C. peanut butter
-4 T. honey
-1 t. vanilla extract
-1-2 T. almond milk (only if needed once mixed)

DIRECTIONS:
-Combine the dry ingredients and set aside.
-Combine all the wet ingredients except milk and microwave for 30 seconds to make it easier to stir in with the dry.
-Stir together all ingredients.
-Try to form little balls by squeezing the mixture and patting (not rolling), and if it seems too dry to come together, drizzle the mixture with 1-2 T. of milk and then stir again.
-Use a mini ice cream scoop to create equal portions, then squeeze and pat into balls.
-Refrigerate covered for 30 minutes and then pop them all in a zip bag or container and store in the fridge up to a week…if they last that long!

Hope you guys love these as much as our family does…these plates started emptying as I was rolling! These easy gluten free energy balls serve as a tasty and filling portable snack on the go, and they are so yummy you could eat one (or three…) for dessert! Happy rolling, friends! 😉
