Banana Peanut Butter Chia Seed Energy Balls

Banana Peanut Butter Chia Seed Energy Balls

There are a few things I love about these peanut butter banana chia seed energy balls – and energy balls in general. They are simple and quick to make, they use up a lot of different subscription box ingredients, you can change up the flavor combinations and they are super healthy! I really can’t say enough about this healthy snack.

You can really tailor these energy balls to your particular tastes. You could trade the bananas with dates or forgo them altogether. I also recommend experimenting with different protein powders or raw meal powders. I’ve made these with my Chocolate Peanut Butter protein powder in the past – oh my gosh they were good! I personally prefer to use a raw meal because they are full of nutrients to make these chia seed balls that much better for you.

In this particular recipe, I decided to use my Juvo Slimming Raw Meal from my Vegan Presence box. I also used the Salba chia seeds from my Bestowed box, the Guerilla Beekeepers Honey from my Orange Glad box and the Justin’s Peanut Butter from my grEAT Kids Snack Box. I told you there were a lot of subscription box ingredients in this recipe!
