Energy balls

I made these in a rush last Sunday when I realized that the school holidays were over and I had next to nothing ready for the kids lunchboxes. They are soooo easy to whip up and, apart from the chocolate chips, quite nutritious. They’re also adult friendly, I often find myself snacking on one after dinner as it satisfies my craving for something sweet.

This recipe is straight from The Girl Who Ate Everything.


1 cup rolled oats
½c ground flaxseed (I used LSA)
½c creamy or crunchy peanut butter
1/3c honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½c chocolate chips (or craisins etc)


Add all of the ingredients to a large bowl and mix together.
Roll into balls. (I did say they were easy to whip up!)


  • If the mixture is too sticky, chill it in the fridge before rolling.
  • I keep the balls in the fridge, it makes them sturdier for the lunch boxes.
