These super tasty peanut butter energy balls are great in between meals, but they’re even good as a quick breakfast. I’m forever rushing the kids out the door for school and not having enough time to grab something for myself. These little babies keep hunger at bay and keep me from getting “hangry” in the car drop off line. I love that I can put together an easy snack that I can feel good about. No bake energy balls just easy and yummy, and those are two of my top criteria for any good recipe!
