Method 

  1. Add your dry ingredients into your bowl, followed by your wet ingredients and mix all together gently using just a spoon

  2. Mold your mixture into fat balls using an ice cream scooper or just simply by using your hands and a spoon, or into any shape you'd like really; I prefer fat balls, it feels more gourmand

  3. Lay down a piece of parchment paper in an airtight container, then lay out your fat balls without sticking them together and place in the freezer for at least an hour or two 

  4. Last about a month in the freezer, if you keep them well stored in an airtight container

Happy Energy Ball making! xoxo This experience will leave you thinking 'Man, that was easy! why haven't I tried this before?' 

All my love,
