Hope you had a great week and is ready to enjoy the weekend!!
Since I’ve came to the U.S. I noticed that “energy balls” are much more popular here than it is in Brazil, and I have been eating them a lot more than I was used to. So guess what happened? Now I am addicted to them and decided to come up with my own recipe so I can have whenever I want 🙂
My PB Dark Chocolate Energy Balls are total success at the house (even Thiago likes them) and they’ve became my favorite pre-workout snack w/ a cup of coffee of course!
Chocolate – Peanut Butter ENERGY BALLS
- 60g chopped dates
- 6 tbsp natural peanut butter
- 1 cup (dry) old-fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup ground flex seed
- 1 scoop de whey de baunilha
- 60g dark chocolate chips (I used the 60% one)
- 1 tbsp honey
Directions: Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Cover it up and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Once chilled, roll it into small balls and ENJOY! ** It makes about 16-17 balls.
