No-bake Energy Balls that WORK!!!

energy balls

I whipped these for my hubby to take with him when he golfs 18 holes.  He typically takes some type of a granola bar, 1-2 bananas & water but I wanted to make him something HOMEMADE that he loves.  So yesterday he put them to the test and LOVED them and so did the guys golfing with him.  They take 10 minutes max to whip up and you keep them in the fridge in an air tight glass container.

Ingredients:
1 cup gluten free oats
2/3 cup organic coconut flakes
1/2 cup almond butter or peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1-2 tbsps chia seeds or sunflower seeds
Small handful raisins, craisins or a few of both
3-4 tbsps Enjoy Life chocolate chips (these are dairy & soy free)
1 tsp vanilla
Dash or 3 of cinnamon

Mix all ingredients, roll into balls & store in an air tight glass container in the fridge.
ENJOY!!!

I whipped this up super fast & served it over gluten free corn bread.  Ok YES the corn bread was from a box but it was a treat and I used all “Amy Approved” ingredients/modifications.  Here is the sauce recipe:

1lb ground turkey
Spoonful of coconut oil
1 onion
3-4 garlic cloves
3-4 carrots (I used multi colored ones)
Yellow pepper
2-3 zucchini’s
5-6 mushrooms
1 cup sprouted lentils
2 large tomatoes
Organic dried parsley & basil (you can also use fresh)
Salt & pepper – lots!

Chop & brown the onion, garlic, carrots & bell pepper.  Add in the ground turkey.  Season with salt, pepper & brown.  Add in chopped zucchini, tomatoes & mushrooms.  Stir all together.  In meantime you should be cooking your lentils.  If you find the sprouted ones (JJ’s on the Mesa carries them) they only take 5 minutes to make.  Strain & add in your lentils (use a big pan).  Season generously with salt, pepper, basil & parsley.  Put a lid on and simmer for about 10 minutes or until the carrots are super soft.

Serve in a bowl or over GF cornbread.  Top with Bragg’s Nutrition Flakes if desired.
CornbreadI bought this at California Fresh Market in Pismo Beach.  The ingredients you are supposed to add are NOT Amy Approved so here is what I added:
1 egg
1 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut milk
6 tbsps. coconut oil
1/4 cup coconut sugar

lentilsHere are the lentils I LOVE that cook in just 5 minutes!!!  JJ’s on the Mesa carries them.

ENJOY!!!
