Energy Snack Balls For When You Need Protein On the Go

By Lauren Bossi, Plant Based on a Budget

These snack bites are great for quick energy on the go, and with the added serving of veggies Ė you can’t beet them!

Yes, beets are the secret ingredient that give these snack balls their pink hue, extra nutrients†and hint of sweetness.


Feel free to adapt them any way you please. The one thing I will say is the beets are very moist so it is crucial to have oats or almond flour as a base to absorb some of that moisture. Otherwise, these are great with chia seeds, hemp hearts, other kinds of nuts and even peanut butter. Enjoy!
