These healthy Banana Chocolate Energy Balls are delicious, soft, and nut-free, making them perfect for school lunches or after school snacks.
These bliss balls are an easy and tasty energy-boosting snack that are great for growing minds. They aren’t vegan as they use honey, but they are nut-free and super soft, making them an ideal snack for the kids school lunchbox (or for the parents!).
My youngest daughter absolutely loves these Banana Chocolate Energy Balls, and they are very quick and simple to make. They are also a great way to use up overripe bananas!
I like to make a big batch and keep them in the fridge for a quick and delicious snack for the whole family (they never last long in my house – LOL!).
