Birthday Cake Energy Balls
A “birthday cake” that only takes 15 minutes to make and doesn’t require any actual baking? Yes, please!
They’re incredibly easy to make — all you have to do is place seven ingredients into a food processor, blend them together, and you’re basically done. There’s no oven time required, so if you’re one of those raw cookie dough eaters (or just looking for a healthy gluten free snack), then this is definitely the dessert for you. (Psst – the sprinkles are just for decoration.)
These energy balls are the perfect pick-me-up for that afternoon slump or when you’re feeling a little peckish. Make a big batch and you’ve got a healthy snack stash to take on the road or to the gym.
