Snowball Energy Balls

Well it isn’t going to snow know this December (when does it evaaaa)? So we had to take the matter into our own hands and make some snowball energy balls. This recipe is super quick, super simple and most importantly super delicious.

These snowball energy balls contain ingredients that you can find in your kitchen cupboards, apart from the chocolate because who has spare chocolate lying around the place? Not us it gets eaten within minutes of it entering the house, if it gets that far!

The recipe makes roughly 16 energy balls that you can keep in the fridge or freeze them to enjoy in the future. Don’t you just love it when you fancy something sweet and then you remember you have some delicious treats waiting for you in the freezer!

What you’re gonna need:
250g Oats
50g Flax seeds
150g Peanut butter
150g Maple syrup
100g White chocolate
50g Cranberries
100g Desiccated Coconut

Let’s get to it:
Line a baking tray with parchment paper
Add all the ingredients apart from the coconut into a large mixing bowl
Stir until all the ingredients are combined (you may need to use your hands)
Roll the mixture into balls (size of your choice)
Roll each of the balls
Place the desiccated coconut onto a plate
Roll the energy balls over the coconut until covered
Place in the fridge for an hour
Store in an airtight container and keep them refrigerated for up to a week- if they last that long of course

BLOGMAS Day 14- Christmas Pudding Energy Balls

It is a well known tradition to have Christmas pudding after your Christmas dinner. it is often the showstopper of the night it often arrives flaming blue and drowned in brandy. making a Christmas pudding can be quite time consuming as you have to steam each of the puddings for a number of hours, but we have to say it is definitely worth it as they taste waaaaay better than the shop bought ones.

We absolutely love making energy balls they are the perfect snack pre or post workout. We wanted to make some festive energy balls and after scrolling through Pinterest we made the decision to create Christmas pudding energy balls!
