These power balls are great when you’re on the go and need to be able to grab something quick to eat. You don’t have to bake them and they are packed with protein and great nutrients to avoid burnout when you’re active. This is my go-to snack when I am running late to teach a yoga class or after a workout when I need to refuel.


This is an incredibly easy recipe and doesn’t take a lot of time. Mix all of the following ingredients together in a large bowl. Make sure it’s a good consistency because you want them to stick together in a ball. My recipe below is what works for me, but have fun with this by adding any additional ingredients you want. Some fun ideas are craisins, dates, ground up almonds, pecans, etc. just make sure you add enough peanut butter so that it all sticks together.


1 1/2 cup of rolled oats

1/3 cup of coconut flakes (unsweetened)

1 cup of PB2 chocolate flavored peanut butter

1/2 cup of ground flaxseed

1/4 cup hemp seeds

1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips (semi-sweetened)

1/3 cup of raw, local honey

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

3 tablespoons of chia seeds


Once everything is mixed together place the bowl in the fridge for an hour or more. When the mixture is chilled you’re able to work with it a bit easier. Put some parchment paper on your counter and make the balls. They should be about a 1 inch diameter.  You can eat them right then or place them in the fridge for later. This is a great recipe to make with your kids. They can’t burn themselves, eat any raw eggs, and they’ll love the result.
