Gluten Free Energy Balls
I am a huge fan of tasty, healthy snacks. These gluten free energy balls fit perfectly into both those categories!
If you have kids then you will understand what I am about to say. You see, I have 5 kids…. 4 of them are teenagers who have endless pits for stomachs.
I have an extra freezer in my walk-in pantry that goes up to my waste. There is generally at least 1 teenager at all times perched on top of that freezer, with their phone, eating snacks.
Given that bottomless pit needs to be fed, I like to have these kinds of snacks on hand so they can at least get some healthy goodness in their tummies.
These gluten free energy balls are not only low carb, but they also only have 3 ingredients.
Yes, you heard me right – only 3 ingredients! So not only are they easy on the pocketbook but they are incredibly fast to make.
Now, I can’t guarantee they will last that long since they taste so good. But at least you can rest comfortably knowing your kids or spouse or YOU are eating a healthy snack. And, hey, if you have to hide a few to make sure you get some, then no judgments from me!
How to Make Gluten Free Energy Bites
Pour the granola into your blender or food processor and pulse until it breaks down slightly.
Then pour the granola into a large bowl and stir in the almond butter and honey.
Chill for 1 hour.
Roll into 1″ balls and store in an airtight container. If your climate is hot you may want to store them in the refrigerator.
Can I use Another Granola
You certainly can. I like this granola because it is a fun mixture of granola and chocolate! And, well, CHOCOLATE!
If you have a favorite granola or you like to make your own, then you can certainly substitute that in place of the one used in this recipe.
How to Store Low Carb Energy Bites
You will want to make sure these energy bites are kept cool. The refrigerator is the best place.
Aside from that, put them in an airtight container and you should be good to go!
What Else Can I Add to the Gluten Free Energy Bites?
I will sometimes add in additional chocolate as well as unsweetened shredded coconut.
Those are just two things to try, but the sky is the limit for what you can add!
What Nut Butter is Best in Energy Balls
My personal favorite is peanut butter. My second favorite is almond butter.
I imagine cashew butter would be phenomenal as well, but I have not tried it.
Can I Make Energy Bars With This Recipe?
You certainly can! Just choose the size pan for the right thickness, press it down and make sure it gets quite cold (and keep it that way).
And BOOM – you have bars!
