Get in a boost of caffeine with these Dirty Chai Energy Balls. Rolled oats and your favorite nut butter are the primary ingredients, so no food processor needed! Gluten-free and vegan-friendly.
Homemade Chai Spice Blend:
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon Cardamom
1/4 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
1/8 Teaspoon All Spice
1/8 Teaspoon Ground Cloves
1/8 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
11/4 Cups Rolled Oats
1 Tablespoon Espresso Powder
1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds
1 Tablespoon Hemptons Shelled Hemp Seeds
1/2 Cup Creamy Natural Nut or Seed Butter of Choice
1/3 Cup Raw Honey or Brown Rice Syrup
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 Tablespoons Cacao Nibs (Or Mini Chocolate Chips)
In a large bowl combine the oats, chai spice blend, espresso powder, chia and hemp seeds and cacao nibs/ mini chocolate chips.
Add in the nut/seed butter, honey or brown rice syrup and vanilla extract.
Use a sturdy spatula or spoon to combine.
Once ingredients have come together, place the bowl in the freezer for about 10 minutes (or fridge for 20 minutes). The cold mixture will make forming the energy balls a lot easier.
Using a tablespoon, scoop the mixture into rounded balls and roll between palms to shape. You should get roughly 18-20 balls.
Enjoy with your morning chai or coffee!
Store the balls in a container in the fridge for about 2 weeks.
Balls also keep well in the freezer in an airtight container for about 2-3 months.
