Peanut Butter Banana Energy Balls {gluten-free, vegan}
Recipe type: Dessert
Makes: 30 bite-sized energy balls
A no-bake treat and healthy snack made with just a few ingredients. These naturally gluten-free energy balls are so convenient to have on hand!
  • 245g(~2 medium) ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
  • 32g (2 tablespoons) creamy natural peanut butter (I prefer salted)
  • 20g (2 tablespoons) chia seeds
  • 1g (~1 teaspoon) ground cinnamon
  • 80g (1 cup) old-fashioned oats
  • 80g (1 cup) old-fashioned oats, ground
  • 24g (ΒΌ cup) PB2, peanut flour or protein powder
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper and set aside
  2. In a medium bowl, combine bananas, peanut butter, chia seeds and cinnamon
  3. Stir in oatmeal, ground oats and PB2 until well combined
  4. Use a tablespoon or small cookie dough scoop to divide up dough and then use your hands to roll into balls; place on prepared baking sheet
  5. Freeze for two hours before placing balls to store in a ziplock bag or Tupperware container
  6. Freeze for up to one month; energy balls can be enjoyed frozen or at room temperature
*If making for someone with a gluten sensitivity, make sure that all ingredients are certified gluten-free
These run about 40 calories / piece; I like eating a few at a time with some string cheese for a filling snack
