WHY I LOVE THIS RECIPE 

These energy balls take minutes to assemble and are the perfect, portable snack for running errands or bouncing between meetings. It’s a balanced bite featuring fiber from the oats and pumpkin, healthy fats from the chia seeds and coconut, and protein from the nut butter. That means sustained energy you can count on! Warning: Your colleagues will ask for one.
