  • Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mix until everything is evenly distributed. If you need to loosen up the batter so that it's easier to mix, add a few splashes of warm water.
  • Scoop out a few tablespoons of batter with your hands. Roll it into a ball. Place on a plate. Repeat with the rest of the batter. You should get about 18 to 20 balls.
  • Enjoy the balls right away or place the plate in the fridge to chill for 30 or more minutes before eating.

  • Use almond butter with a drizzly consistency for best results. Almond butter made with just almonds or almonds and salt is more drizzly than almond butter with added oils. If you can't find a drizzly almond butter, you will need to add a few splashes of water to the batter to get it to loosen up.
  • To freeze energy balls, place them in a single layer in a freezer bag or in a container in layers separated by wax or parchment paper. Seal well, label, and store in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge before eating or just enjoy straight from the freezer.
