No-Bake, {Gluten-Free} Energy Balls

No Bake Gluten Free Energy Balls

These balls are fabulous for kids, gluten free + healthy! They will definitely add an extra kick to your day!

They are packed full of energy-filled goodness {and then some other goodness that might not give you energy, but will definitely taste delicious}.

I chose to make my version with peanut butter, but these could be made with whatever butter you prefer {almond, hazelnut, or whatever your diet allows}. They would be the perfect addition to any hiking or biking trip, a trip to the beach or even the mall. Whenever you opt to eat them, beware: they are highly addictive. Kids will go crazy {and grown-ups too}! They are a great recipe to make with your kids as well, and not a lot of clean up.

    I made these with my son’s transitional kindergarten class for Valentine’s day and they were a HUGE hit! We substituted almond butter because of a peanut allergy. All the children participated and loved the delicious healthy snack they made. These energy balls are great.

    I’ve made these multiple times now and they are the hit of the party among my health conscious friends. Sometimes they need a little more honey or peanut butter to make them stick. Other then that they’re awesome. They’ve made the hit list of new fav’s in my circle.
