Tips for Making Chocolate Coconut Energy Balls
- This recipe serves as a base for energy balls. You can customize them however you want.
- If there is a nut allergy, you can substitute sun butter, almond butter, or even WOW butter.
- And if you are trying to keep your sugar intake down, substitute unsweetened coconut flakes and omit the mini chocolate chips. Raisins would be a good addition as well.
- Make this vegan by using Agave instead of honey. Be sure to use slightly less as agave has a tendency to be much sweeter than honey.
- Make-ahead tip: store these energy balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week, or in the freezer for up to a month.
- These work great as a snack, pick me up, or just a sweet treat to have around when you are clean eating.
