1 cup creamy natural nut or seed butter (I used homemade)
1/3 cup raw honey or brown rice syrup (or maple syrup)
1 1/2 cups rolled oats (gluten-free if needed)
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
3 TBSP brewer’s yeast
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1-2 TBSP melted coconut oil or avocado oil
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips (dairy-free if needed)
In a large bowl combine cashew butter (or nut/seed butter of choice) and sweetener; use sturdy spatula or spoon to combine.
Add in oats, flaxseed meal, brewers yeast and cinnamon; stir until almost combined, adding 1-2 TBSP of melted oil as needed. Then add in mini chocolate chips, stirring until evenly mixed in.
Place bowl in freezer for about 10 minutes (or fridge for 20 minutes). The cold mixture will make forming the energy balls a lot easier.
Using a 1/2 round tablespoon or small cookie scoop, scoop mixture into rounded balls and roll between palms to shape. You should get roughly 24 rounded tablespoon size balls.
Store balls in fridge, up to two weeks or keep in freezer.
