No-Bake Oat and Nut Butter Energy Balls (Snack)

These energy balls are ideal for a quick and healthy on-the-go snack.


  • 1 cup Lion rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped Lion Premium Nuts (almonds, cashews, etc)
  • 1/4 cup dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, etc.)
  • 1/4 cup nut butter (peanut butter, almond butter, etc.)
  • 1/4 cup Lion Dates Syrup
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds (optional)
  1. Prep the Base: Start by gathering your dry ingredients in a large bowl. Toss in the rolled oats, chopped nuts, and dried fruit for a vibrant mix. Give it a good stir to ensure everything is evenly distributed.
  2. Bind it Up: Now, it's time for the wet ingredients! Add the nut butter and date syrup to the dry mix. With a spoon or spatula, mix it thoroughly till it turns sticky & holds its shape when you press it together.
  3. Shape & Chill: Scoop out about 1 tablespoon of the mixture at a time. Roll it between your palms to form a compact ball - think bite-sized energy boost! Repeat this process with the remaining mixture, adjusting the size as desired for your perfect snack. Once all the balls are formed, place them in an airtight container. Pop them in the refrigerator to chill for up to a week. Enjoy them cold for a refreshing and satisfying snack!
  • If the mixture feels too dry, add a little more dates syrup or nut butter, one tablespoon at a time, until it reaches the desired consistency.
  • Get creative with add-ins! You can experiment with shredded coconut, chopped dark chocolate, mini chocolate chips, or even a sprinkle of cinnamon for extra flavor.
  • Make a big batch: This recipe makes a perfect grab-and-go snack for the whole week. Just remember to store them in the refrigerator!
