Chocolate peanut butter energy balls are healthy, no-bake, vegan, peanut butter chia seed and almond balls with dark chocolate chips. 100% Paleo + gluten-free + grain-free.
Ingredients (12 balls)
1 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp LSA (or ground flaxseeds)
1 tbsp cacao powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup desiccated coconut
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
4-5 tbsp water
In a large mixing bowl, add all the dry ingredients (apart from the chocolate chips), stir to combine, set aside.
In a small bowl, add the liquid ingredients: peanut butter and honey/ maple syrup, microwave 20-30 seconds. This step will soften the peanut butter making it easier to combine with the dry ingredients. Don't over-warm.
Pour the liquid ingredients onto the dry ingredients, combine using a spatula until it forms a sticky batter that you can easily shape into granola balls. Add the chocolate chips. Add in 3 tbsp water, mix then add more if you think you need more until mixture is easy for you to roll.
Slightly grease your hands with coconut oil, then roll mixture into 12 balls. Place the balls onto baking paper in a container in the freezer for 10 minutes.
