Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls

These delicious and addictive Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls are quick and easy to whip up. They’re perfect to have on hand as a pick me up when you’re feeling your energy levels dip. For me that’s every day at about 3-4pm – especially when I’m at work! Make a batch and they’ll last for up to a week in your fridge.

Store bought energy snacks are often overly sweet in my opinion so I get sick of them easily. That’s why it’s great making your own energy balls as you can really adapt them to suit your taste buds and mix up the ingredients each time.
