I love how easy these Weight Watchers Energy Balls are to make and how convenient they are for a grab and go snack food. It can be hard to find Weight Watchers recipes that are packed with nutrition and taste great, but this recipe does both!
DO ENERGY BALLS ACTUALLY GIVE YOU ENERGY?
People often wonder if energy bites actually give you any energy or if the name is just a hoax. I think it really depends on the energy ball itself.
The purpose of energy balls is that they have a great balance of protein, good carbs, healthy fat, and fiber. The balance of these ingredients may allow for a slow release of energy in a natural way.
The fact that energy bites are a great grab and go snack makes them a much better choice then other processed foods you might grab.

This simple WW energy balls recipe only has 5 ingredients. I like to keep it quick and easy. This is also a great recipe for using up those really ripe bananas!
HOW TO MAKE WW ENERGY BALLS
This recipe does involve baking the energy balls. I have seen other recipes that don't involve baking…there are LOTS of ways to make energy balls.
STEP ONE: MAKE THE DOUGH
Start off by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F.
Take a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper.
Now take a large bowl and add the ripe bananas and mash them up with a fork. Add in the oats, protein powder, cinnamon and the mini chocolate chips.
Mix the ingredients until they are well combined.
STEP TWO: FORM BALLS
Now use a small cookie scoop to form balls that are around 1 inch in size. This should make about 20 balls.
Place the balls onto the lined baking sheet.
STEP THREE: BAKE
Now place the baking sheet into the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
When they are done baking allow the energy balls to cook and then store in an airtight container.
