SerenaFit Energy Balls

Finding the right pre workout or mid morning snack can be a challenge sometimes. I was messing around in my test kitchen and came up with my version of a peanut butter energy ball to have around the house. They turned out really great!

Ingredients: 

4 - 100 calorie packs of Quaker Oats, plain

3/4 cup Trader Joes crunchy peanut butter

1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

2.5 tbsp honey

1 mini dark chocolate bar chopped up into chunks

Drizzle all natural maple syrup

Directions:

Throw everything together in a large mixing bowl. Use a fork to mash the peanut butter up. 

Put mix into fridge for 20 minutes to help with consistency. 

Create small balls from the mix and place on a piece of foil or parchment paper. I grabbed a small handful of mix and rolled it around between the palms of my hand until it was concrete. 

Be sure the balls are about the same size. This mix yielded 7 medium sized pieces for me. 

Use the all natural maple syrup when you're done to drizzle over each piece. 

Place in fridge for 2-10 hours for best taste. 

From this mix, each ball is about 150 calories!
