Here’s my favorite base energy balls recipe + 10 different flavors of energy balls you can make with it!




Wet Ingredients

  • ¾ cup nut butter (I use unsalted, natural creamy peanut butter)
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup

Dry Ingredients

  • ¾ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup ground flaxseed


  • 1 cup add-ins of choice (shredded coconut, chopped nuts, chocolate chips, dried fruit, etc)

Optional Toppings

  • 2 tablespoons add-ins

For flavor variations, check out the post above. 🙂


  1. Add all ingredients to a large bowl: nut butter, maple syrup, oats, ground flaxseed, and add-ins.
  2. Using a sturdy rubber spatula, stir and fold until well mixed. Make sure the dry ingredients are completely coated in the wet ingredients.
  3. Using a small or medium cookie scoop, scoop and drop balls of mixture onto a plate or a lined baking sheet.
  4. Roll balls of mixture in your hands to create a sphere. Use your fingers to press together any loose bits.
  5. Optionally, press Toppings into the energy balls. Enjoy!
  6. For flavor variations (including Almond Joy), be sure to check out the post above.
