What are energy balls?

There are so many different recipes for these across the web, and you might even recognize them under a different name as well, such as energy bites, protein balls, power balls, raw truffles, and more. They're essentially a no-bake bar in the shape of a ball and it's usually a combination of healthy fats, protein, and carbs to give you energy as an afternoon pick-me-up.

How to make energy balls?

Most energy ball recipes contain a blend of oats, nut butter, nuts and dates. Sometimes you'll find adaptogens, superfood powders, protein powder and more. While the foundation is essentially the same, the variations and flavor combinations are endless!

This recipe for our hazelnut energy balls will probably make it to your top 3 healthy afternoon snacks for kids (or adults). They taste like ferrero rochers but guilt-free and only uses the best ingredients. Don't have kids? Make these for yourself and slay your day like the badass that you are.
