A while back I had tried a Hornby Island Gourmet Energy Ball from our local health food store and have been addicted ever since. Problem is that they're $3 a ball which is a bit pricey so I wanted to make my own at home. I experimented with a few recipes but none of them tasted like the real thing so I just mixed a few of the recipes together until I got it right!
Rip-off Hornby Island Energy Balls
2 cups oats
2/3 cup natural peanut butter
2 tbls unsulfured blackstrap molasses
3 tbls powdered milk
1/3 cup honey or agave nectar
1 tsp vanilla (optional)
Mix the first 5 ingredients together in a bowl.
Roll into a log in wax paper and chill for 2 hours.
Shape into golf ball sized pieces and roll into sesame seeds.
Dip one side into melted chocolate.
