It’s finally starting to get cold down here in Texas! I’m currently in the southernmost part of Texas, the Rio Grande Valley, which is right along the Mexico border. It’s normally all sunshine and warm breezes, even in the middle of winter, but today was super cold and tomorrow will be even colder! I’ve been eating a lot of soup and drinking lots of fresh pressed juice to keep away my allergies that are trying to overcome me. When I feel any kind of cold or sore throat or allergy coming on, I literally just drink warm lemon water all day long and it prevents me from getting sick. It’s pretty amazing.
These delicious energy balls are also pretty amazing. The key lime pie balls are light and sweet with a touch of tang, and the chocolate peanut butter balls are dense and rich with flavor. They both contain some of my favorite foods, like almonds, cashews, chia seeds, coconut and peanut butter. Instead of using sugar or a processed sweetener, these energy balls are naturally using dates. Yum!
Making energy balls is really fun and easy, and you can make them in big batches to munch on throughout the week. Whether you make the key lime pie or the chocolate peanut butter or both, you’ll fall in love with these vegan, gluten free energy balls!
