Place these in a tightly-sealed container and store in the freezer for a convenient energy-boosting snack. They‘re a great addition to a party tray, too, with raw vegetables and dried fruit. Substitute peanut or cashew butter for almond, if you prefer.


1 1/2 cup
almond butter
banana (peeled and mashed)
2 tablespoons
flaxseed, ground
2 tablespoons
whey protein powder
2 tablespoons
cocoa powder
1 tablespoon
1/3 cup
almonds (finely chopped)


In a mixing bowl, stir together the almond butter, banana, flax, protein powder, cocoa powder and honey. Blend until smooth. Line a plate or pan with parchment paper. Roll into 1- to 2-inch balls and place on parchment paper. Place chopped almonds in a bowl. Next, roll each ball in the chopped almonds and return to parchment paper. Place in the refrigerator or freezer until firm.
