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.
