No-Bake Energy Balls (peanut-free!)

Jump to Recipe

One of my all-time FAVORITE snacks has to be no-bake energy balls. I honestly make them every week to have in-between meals or before workouts as a little energy booster. They are made with all whole ingredients with no refined sugars or artificial ingredients. I’ve had this recipe in my phone notes for TOO LONG not to share. I hope you enjoy!
