Oats and Green smoothie Energy balls

As usual, I didn’t plan to make these cute little energy balls. I really just wanted to make a nice green smoothie. But here, this is what I came up with…

Just so you know, they taste really nice and are super healthy! (Apart from the maple syrup)

INGREDIENTS

1 cup of oats (blended into flour)

1/4 cup of oats (whole)

2 tablespoons of Maple Syrup

3 tablespoons of Chia seeds

3 tablespoons of melted coconut oil

1 tablespoons of VEGAN dark chocolate sauce – or make your own. But that is kind of long when all you want to do is hurry up so you can eat them.

4 tablespoons of the green smoothie from my previous post (This basically replaces the milk as well as giving the energy balls a greenish colour)

INSTRUCTIONS

Probably the most easiest recipe.

  1. Add and mix all of the above ingredients, including the 4 tablespoons of green smoothie, into a bowl.
  2. Using your hands, combine the ingredients together until it forms into dough. If you find that your dough is quite dry, add a little bit more of the green smoothie into it. Alternatively, just use milk.
  3. Roll into little balls.
  4. Top with the chocolate syrup and then leave in the fridge for a few hours.

GREEN SMOOTHIE

Definitely one of the best green smoothies I’ve made. But maybe I was just very hungry at the time…No no i’m joking, it was really nice.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup of Spinach

Half and Avocado

Handful of frozen mango

1 Apple, peeled and chopped into small pieces

1 tablespoons of Maple syrup

1 Tablespoon of Pumpkin seeds

1 Tablespoon of Peanut butter


Oh yeah, also, those balls you see in the background are my spontaneously created energy balls, made from the left overs of this smoothie. Literally, I had no idea what I was doing, yet they came out amazing. Always the way.
