Almond Butter & Oat Energy Balls

By  | 

These almond butter Energy bites are so healthy and delish.

They are nutty and rich from the almond/peanut butter, chewy from the oats, and sweet from the dates and maple syrup!

▪️You can add protein powder for an added boost (or hemp seeds or chia seeds) or, not.

▪️They are adaptable. If you don’t have almond butter, you can just use peanut butter (I’ve used both in this batch) or even tahini for a nut free-version.
