Perfect with a cup of tea, these afternoon pick me ups are great for that mid afternoon slump or pre/post gym treat. There are countless recipes available for energy balls online, but these ones are great if you don’t have access to a food processor. You can play about with the ingredients, but we find these ones are loved, especially by children and teenagers. They're SO easy to make, you can pop a couple in your bag and they will prevent everyone hitting that slump.
Peanut Butter, Oat and Dark Chocolate Energy Balls
Prep time: 10 minutes
Chill time: 1 hour
100g peanut butter (or see our recipe for homemade almond and coconut butter), if too thick, place in the microwave for 30 seconds to warm slightly and loosen. We love using Manilife!
