Beet Energy Balls

These snack bites are great for quick energy on the go and with the added serving of veggies – you cant beet it!

Feel free to adapt them any way you please! The one thing I will say is the beets are very moist so it is crucial to have oats or almond flour as a base to absorb some of that moisture. Otherwise, these are great with chia seeds, hemp hearts, other kinds of nuts and even peanut butter. Enjoy!
