Oatmeal Energy Balls


Feeling the afternoon slump? Then I've got the perfect recipe for you!


Energy balls are the perfect little treat! They don't require any baking, are gluten-free and are perfect for a healthy snack!


They've always been a favourite of mine as they are quick and easy to make, last for a while in the fridge (unless you eat them all at once... aha) & are perfect as a snack or as a sweet treat after a meal.


These oatmeal energy balls definitely help to satisfy those sweet cravings!


This recipe is simple and requires a limited number of ingredients. They are also great to make ahead of time, especially when life gets a little bit hectic!


This recipe makes 10 small energy balls and is:


- simple

- uses only 8 ingredients

- healthy

- no-baking required

- gluten-free


They take just 10 minutes to make, last around 1 week in the fridge (and about 1 month in the freezer) and can easily be adapted to suit your flavour preferences.
