Craving something sweet, chewy, satisfying and nourishing? I’ve got you covered with these oatmeal cookie energy balls.
These energy balls can be made in advance and kept in the fridge or freezer for days when you’re running out of the house, or they can be enjoyed for breakfast or as a sweet treat. Basically, any time you want a little something to munch on these energy balls come in handy.
If you’re not much of a chocolate and peanut butter fan- first of all, I don’t think we can be friends- but second of all, the peanut butter can be swapped out for sunflower seed butter, almond butter, cashew butter, etc. and the chocolate chips can be replaced with basically any nut or seed you want.
If you’re more of a visual person, I also have a Youtube Video of me making these oatmeal energy balls, along with two other delicious plant-based snacks!
I hope you enjoy these little pieces of heaven as much as I do!
