Chocolate Protein Energy Balls

A Day in the Life Food Health & Fitness Recipes Things We Love

We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But between getting up and getting myself and two kids ready for school, there isn’t always enough time to make myself a good one.

Four out of five weekday mornings, I go workout after I drop the kids off at school. So if I do eat breakfast, I need something good on the go. And especially pre-workout, I need something light that also gives me essential nutrients I need to help do my workout! Not to mention be healthy at the same time!

I’ve seen so many variations of energy balls lately. I’ve tried pre-made, and I’ve tried a slew of different recipes. The first ones I ever made actually had dates and cashews. They were amazing, but my son ended up being allergic to them, so I don’t make that kind anymore.

There are a ton of different ways to make them and I wanted to share one of my favs. I actually tried using Almond Butter for this recipe instead of peanut butter (and PB2 for less fat). They turned out great and you can tweak the recipe as you want to just like I have.

They are so easy to make and take no time at all.

So…grab your ingredients::

Perfect for a pre-workout breakfast, a post workout snack, or an afternoon snack just because 😉

Trust me, you’ll pop them in your mouth without thinking and be done the entire batch before you know it! So maybe even double it up LOL

Let me know if you make them, and what ingredients you chose to use. And of course share here how they turn out!

For the last 7+ years I have immersed myself in the "mom life". My blog, appropriately named Me, Myself and Kids is my life; the challenges, the laughter, and the tears. But I also offer my own version of motherly advice. In doing so, I’ve designating myself as an MD or “Mom Doc”. Not because I know it all. Don’t get me wrong. It’s an open perspective; my learnings shared so you can take the good, bad and ugly and adapt it to your own family life. So please join me as I share all of the crazy and overwhelming thoughts and experiences of the mom life with Me, Myself and Kids.
