No Bake Energy Balls

Snacking is one of my favourite hobbies, I would snack all day if I could but finding tasty healthy snacks can be hard. After looking at recipes for various different energy balls, I thought I would try my own out by testing the ingredients I already owned. These are to my personal taste, as I like sweet things, but you can always try them to your own taste.

Ingredients - 

  • 1/2 cup of milled flaxseed
  • 1/2 cup of ground almonds
  • 1/3 cup of hemp protein powder
  • Handful of dark chocolate chips
  • Handful of chopped goji berries
  • Handful of dried cranberries
  • 4 tbsp of honey
  • 2 tbsp of cashew butter

I simply put them all into a mixing bowl, dry ingredients first before adding the honey until the consistency is sticky enough to roll into a ball. I placed them into fridge for a few hours so that they would harden up a little, which made them easy to eat straight away or pop into a tupperware box to snack on at work. 
Fill them with the good stuff and you won't feel guilty eating them in between meals. I find that they're perfect for that time between breakfast and lunch, especially if you have breakfast super early. But also great for post-workout as they add the extra protein you may need if you add the protein powder in, as well as the anti-oxidants from the goji berries and dark chocolate. 

What are your favourite healthy snacks?
