Energy Balls


Of all the meals we cooked on Saturday, I think these energy balls are my favourite. I'm a big snacker, especially healthy snacks. Unfortunately I love the high fat ones (good fat of course), like granola or almonds, granola bars and stuff like that too, so this was right up my alley. They are made with whole grain Rice Krispies, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, dried cranberries, honey and either coconut and dates or peanut butter. It's very hard not to eat them all at once. They're the perfect snack just before leaving work for my bike ride home. I bring 3 to work and that's it. Seriously, once you start, you don't want to stop. I'm dreading the day I run out of them.

I know, I haven't eaten anything exciting in a few days. I would have posted about the meatloaf I made but it was way too salty. Not worth talking about.
