These no-bake energy balls come together so quickly and pack a good bit of protein thanks to the almond butter. They're warmly spiced, sweetened with honey and have a great crunchy bite from the seeds and cacao nibs.


  • 1 cup almond butter

    1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons honey

    1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil, plus more to form balls

    1 3/4 cups raw old-fashioned oats

    1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut flakes

    1/3 cup sunflower seeds

    2 tablespoons flax seeds

    1/3 cup cacao nibs

    1/2 teaspoon Simply Organic Ceylon Cinnamon

    1/4 teaspoon sea salt or pink Himalayan salt


    1. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, combine almond butter, honey and coconut oil. Heat until melted and stir until well combined.

    2. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together oats, coconut flakes, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, cacao nibs, cinnamon and salt. Fold in warm almond butter mixture and, working quickly using a silicone spatula or wooden spoon, stir to combine.

    3. Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper and spread a little coconut oil on your hands to help handle the sticky dough. Spoon roughly 2 tablespoons of the mixture into well-oiled hands, form into a ball and place on prepared pan. Repeat until all balls are formed.

    4. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour, until firm. Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
