No-Bake Almond Butter Energy Balls
By Holly Darnell, RD
February 24, 2022
Snacks should be easy — a midday nibble to get you through to dinnertime or a little post-workout boost. But if you’ve ever attempted to find the right snack, you know how difficult it can be. So many store-bought snacks are packed with sugar, unhealthy oils and ingredients you’ve most likely never heard of.
But lately making your own snacks became an internet thing, in particular the "no bake" phenomenon. Many of the no-bake energy balls or "energy bites" can be delicious and snack-worthy. What is often missing, however, is a more balanced energy ball with nearly equal carbs, fat and protein. Most have too much sugar vs. not enough fat or sugar.
For these almond butter energy ball recipe, it's not the case. They're the real deal, with 191 calories per energy ball, with 15 grams of carbs, 11 grams of good fats and 10 grams of protein. They will fill you and power you through your afternoon.
It's why no bake energy balls can be the perfect healthy snack. They’re portable, making them easy to carry along for a food fix on the go. And most of the protein comes from Bone Broth Protein Vanilla, which provides gut, skin and joint support. Oh, and did I mention they taste great?
The easiest way to make these no-bake almond butter energy balls? Use a food processor and add the almond butter, honey, vanilla and sea salt. Pulse to combine.
Otherwise, use a wooden spoon to bring those ingredients together.
Next, either ask the remaining ingredients to the food processor or bowl and combine further.
Using a rubber scraper or even ice cream scooper, take out enough of the mixture to form golf ball-size balls. You'll need to use your hands to make sure they're well shaped and stick together. (So make sure your hands are extra clean!)
Place the balls on a baking sheet or a couple of plates. Simple refrigerate for one hour. Consume within a week or freeze half the batch. Enjoy!
