Pantry Clearing No Bake Energy Balls
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 70 minutes

Got nuts, seeds, and oats? Add a few additional ingredients for these fatty, sustaining energy cookies you can grab and eat.


  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup flax seed meal
  • 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (can be replaced with chia seeds, chocolate chips, shredded nuts, etc., but the texture will vary based on what you pick and what you have on hand!)
  • 1/2 cup nut butter of your choice
  • 2 tbsp ghee (you can omit this to make the recipe vegan, but I think ghee makes everything both tastier and more nutritiously dense)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • if your nut butter or ghee is salted, no need for extra salt, or you could add a dusting of salt if you’d like
  • optional seasoning: cinnamon, masala, chai spice, turmeric, etc.
