Healthy peanut butter coconut energy balls made with coconut flakes, dates and chia seeds. These mini bites are perfect for breakfast or snack.
These peanut butter coconut energy balls I made especially for the collaborative cookbook. They are healthy, vegan and vegetarian. Also, they are packed with only real food ingredients like chia seed, cashews and coconut flakes. However, it took me only about 10 minutes to make them and I had about 12 energy balls. They are sweetened only with dates.
Whenever you need a snack between meals you can grab these coconut energy balls. They are perfect for breakfast too if you are in a rush and you don’t have time to make a breakfast. Just prepare them ahead and you will have them for awhile. These balls are very satisfying so you will not feel hungry after eating them.
The whole collaborative cookbook is packed with 40 recipes. Many popular food bloggers contributed to this project. All of these snack recipes are made in less than 10 minutes. They are made with just healthy ingredients. There are no processed food in this ebook. Many of them are vegan, paleo or vegetarian.
I try to limit processed food as much as I can. Basically, I cook mostly from scratch. So I am happy when my children have wholesome food on their plates. You can definitely check more Healthy Recipes on my blog. Therefore, there are many recipes to choose from like weeknight dinners, desserts, drinks and breakfasts.
