Banana Bread Energy Balls

banana ballsMy friend Stephanie passed on this recipe. I love having energy balls on hand because you can have them stashed in the freezer or refrigerator for when you need a quick pick me up or when the kids want a little treat. When I made it per the recipe, they were really sticky so I actually ended up putting it all back in the bowl and added some chopped pecans and protein powder to it. They are still a little sticky but they hold together great and taste great, so it doesn’t bother us.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp. mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup vanilla protein powder (I used Tera’s Whey)

Mix all ingredients together and form into balls. I used a big spoonful to roll. Place on parchment paper inside a glass pyrex dish and refrigerate for 2 hours.
