If you’re looking for a delicious snack that can serve as an excellent source of energy for workouts and outdoor adventures then this is it! Energy balls are the perfect healthy snack before a workout or on the go when you’re on a snowboard trip, climbing mountains, or just need to satisfy your sweet tooth in a healthy way.

I’ve never been a fan of store bought protein or snack bars. Most of the time the ingredients and nutrition facts didn’t stand up to the advertising on the front of the package. So instead of settling for a snack bar that didn’t live up to my nutritional values or provide sustainable energy for high performance and outdoor adventures I started making my own. These little balls bring lots of flavor and energy for the long haul.

Make a batch of either recipe or both and make them uniquely your own by adding some of your favorite ingredients.
