I love energy balls for so many reasons. They are so easy to make, delicious and packed full of nutrients. We travel quite often, and when we do I always make sure to make some energy balls for the trip.
This recipe was created when I had self-imposed a “banana” challenge – I had accumulated 60 bananas from a work function and didn’t want them to go to waste, hence the self-imposed challenge. I made at least 4 batches of these, which was great because they’re easy to freeze and taste great when cold.
I hope you try these out; they’re super easy to make and travel well. Leave me a comment below on what you think of these!
Now set forth and be savvy!
- 1 ripened banana
- 2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
- 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- ½ cup carob chips, chopped
Blend everything except the chocolate chips in a food processor until it comes together.
Remove blade from the container and mix in carob chips with a spatula
Form into 20-24 balls
Refrigerate for4 hours or over night
They are best served cold, but room temperature is fine too.
