3 Ingredient No Bake Almond Butter Paleo Energy Balls (V, GF, DF): an easy recipe for perfectly sweet, seriously satisfying no bake paleo energy bites. Vegan, Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free.
So did I tell you, I’ve been going to the same gym as my mom? It’s equal parts awesome, hilarious, a tad dodgy, and again, hilarious (yes, that’s two parts for hilarity). You guys should see her!
She always has on the cutest gym outfits, is beaming like no other, asking if we have any almond butter cups or homemade KIND nut bars stashed in our gym bags to share, and she loves to hug both me and Erik, regardless of what phase any of us are in our workouts. Hint: we are usually all varying degrees of awkwardly sweaty.
A mother’s love… what can I say?
Of course, I have to pester her and ask her why she dresses waaaay cuter for the gym than for when we hang out. Are you reading this, Mommy? Ahem!
Anyway, when Erik and I were first talking about going to my mom’s gym, at first, I was totally like, “No way!! I’m not going to the same gym as my mom! She’ll be able to track my movements and see if I am, in fact, too busy for dinner,” etc. I know, I know, I’ve got to be a better daughter. I will say that I did bring her these 3 ingredient no bake almond butter paleo energy balls and a batch of no bake almond butter paleo brownie bites last time though!
But then, I started really looking forward to seeing her, like every day. Proud mama’s girl right here. 🙂 The moment she sees me, she smiles like the sun. I’m totally grinning just thinking about it.
There’s nothing quite like it. 😊
So now that we see her on a daily basis at the gym, we’ve taken to exchanging requests for things (update: she’s now asking me for my latest almond butter recipe: gluten free almond butter chocolate chip cookies), hassling each other about an upcoming event, and of course, poking fun of each other.
For example, my mom likes to call us if we don’t go to the gym that night, like, “Excussssssse me! I did not see someone at the gym! What happened?”
And when she doesn’t show up, we immediately have to call her and say, “Did someone CHEAT today?? Are you sitting at home eating noodles and watching movies? Why are you not working out?”
Meanwhile, my mom’s taken to dropping hints about what recipes she’d like for me to work on next, and what dessert requests she has for the weekend (gluten free peanut butter cookies, 5 minute homemade fudge) and what cute new workout clothes she can recommend for me (gee, thanks, Mom! What are you trying to say??).
She recently requested a super easy, super simple nutrient-rich snack for the gym, so I whipped up these 3 ingredient no bake almond butter paleo energy balls and this homemade chunky paleo granola. My mom loves almond butter, especially for gym snacks. She says that it’s easier for her to eat repeatedly than peanut butter. I think it’s because of the taste factor—it’s so much more neutral!
I took my super simple 3 ingredient peanut butter no bake energy bites recipe, and swapped out the PB for AB, et voila! I often get comments and questions about whether or not nut butters can be interchanged, so I thought this would be the perfect time to settle it once and for all (but not really, bc I know I’ll get and happily answer that question again). 😉
Let me tell you all about these 3 Ingredient No Bake Almond Butter Paleo Energy Balls’ finest points. They’re:
