Strawberry and White Chocolate Energy Balls
The kids and I BOTH need a healthy, filling snack that we can grab on the go and these are PERFECT!
Ditch the goldfish, the granola bars, the fruit snacks and try these.
Just like I tell my kids, "Does mama EVER give you something that doesn’t taste good? NO! JUST TRUST ME!"
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup nut or sunflower butter
1/4 cup honey or real maple syrup
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup white chocolate
1 cup freeze-dried strawberries
Place oats, chia, and salt in food processor and pulse until finely ground.
Add nut or sunflower butter, honey (or maple syrup), vanilla, and strawberries. Blend until ingredients come together and form a dough-like ball.
Pull blade out of processor, add white chocolate, and use your hands to mix together.
Use a small cookie scoop (or spoon) to scoop the mixture into balls. If using a spoon, roll them into balls.
Transfer the balls to the refrigerator to chill.
If you're feeling fancy, you can drizzle some melted white chocolate and crushed freeze-dried strawberries overtop after the balls chill for at least 30 minutes.
Store energy balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.
Thank you, #dishingouthealth for the inspo!
