Keeping the kids energy up is important and I’ve tried a bunch of different snacks but so far everyone’s favorite are these super easy Peanut Butter Energy Balls. My goal was to make something the kids could eat quickly during practice or a game and these little balls of peanut butter chocolate goodness are the perfect on the go energy boost. They’re so easy to make, just a little peanut butter, honey, oats, mini chocolate chips, and chopped peanuts all stirred together and then chilled before being rolled into balls that are small enough to eat in a couple of bites. I make a big batch at the beginning of the week and keep them in the refrigerator then i pack them up and take them to games for the team. They disappear as fast as I can hand them out!
