Power Energy Balls are one of my favorite new discoveries!  One of the great challenges we face as parents is what to give our kids that will satisfy their palate while at the same time offer nutritional value?  Parents ask me all the time; what can I give my kid as a tasty desert that's not filled with sugar?   Here's what I love the most about this recipe.
  • It's simple.
  • It's super healthy.
  • Your kids will love it, and
  • It's a great recipe to do with your child.
  • Easy to substitute ingredients to suit your taste (see below)

    Here I am with my assistant Marco introducing Power Energy Balls to a crowd of people at the Festival of Chocolate.

  • 1 cup (dry) oatmeal
  • 2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes

  • 1/2 cup ground flax-seed or wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Method:

Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed.  Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour.  Once chilled, roll into balls of whatever size you would like.  Store in an airtight container.

About 20 to 25 Power Energy Balls. Substitutions:
  • chopped dried fruit (apricots, dates, raisins, etc.)
