Oatmeal Energy Balls, Ahoy!!!!

Due to multiple requests by team members, I’ve been asked to share with you my Oatmeal Energy Ball recipe. My boys eat these about 45 minutes before each meet for an extra shot of Runner-Friendly energy. They are much cheaper and better for you than Gatorade gummies and other pre-race products.

So, here goes:

In a mixing bowl, combine and lightly mix:

1 cup old-fashioned or steel-cut oats
1/4 cup plain instant oats
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp ginger
1/4 cup banana chips (i put them into a baggie and smash them up so that its easier to mold into the ball shape)
-—-I’ve also used raisins, dried mango, dried cranberries, etc…. these all work fine but change the amounts in order to keep them intact…………….

lightly mix dry ingredients just by folding with your hand.

add:

1/2 cup smooth creamy peanut butter, nutella, or sun butter
1/3 cup organic honey

Mix all ingredients evenly with a wooden frosting spoon.

You may have to adjust the dryness of your mixture by either added a bit more honey or oats to get to your preferred consistency.

You can put mixture into fridge for 10 minutes if you would like or you can roll them into balls immediately.

If you wet your hands with water bdfore rolling, it will cut down on the honey sticking and make them easier to compact (an old trick from my Grandma)

This recipe will produce 14-16 balls, depending on the sizes you make.

I give the boys 3-4 for a serving before racetime (again, depending on the size of each one.)

I pre-portion them into baggies and keep them in the fridge until Race Day. They stay just fine for 4-5 days.

Prepare…………Eat…………..Enjoy!!!
