I brought along some homemade Energy Balls to share on a hike to Larch Valley with some friends. Everyone wanted the recipe so here it is.
Energy Balls: My amended recipe from Rock Salt Restaurant on Salt Spring Island
GLUTEN FREE, DAIRY FREE, NUT FREE AND SO STINKING GOOD!
Combine in bowl: I use heavy duty mixer with paddle
- 2 cups (all natural, just peanuts) peanut butter
- 1/2 cup honey (or less)
- 1 cup toasted pepitas (small green pumpkin seeds)
- 1 cup toasted sesame seeds
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips (dairy free, gluten free)
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 cup dried cranberries
Mix until thoroughly incorporated. Scoop a heaping Tbsp of mixture and roll into a ball. Roll balls in toasted or natural coconut or toasted sesame seeds
Spread balls on a cookie sheet and freeze. Store frozen balls in tupperware or ziplock bag in freezer. They are easy to grab and go when you are in a hurry or need a quick snack to plate out.
