Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup – Peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp – Honey
  • 1 cup – Oats
  • 1/2 cup – Chocolate chips (optional)

*To this, add chia seeds along with oats and chocolate chips. Mix all the ingredients until you get a sticky paste.

*Now take some of this mixture and mould into balls. Set the energy balls on a tray or glass container and store in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

*Prepare in small batches so that you can enjoy them fresh. It is great as a breakfast and for those sweet-tooth cravings as well.

While peanut butter is packed with bone-building magnesium, potassium and vitamin B6, chia seeds are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and  fibre. Honey adds a natural sweetness and is anti-bacterial.
