Are Energy Balls Good For You

Energy balls are a great snack, they are satiating, filled with protein, good fats, healthy carbs, and are loaded with fiber. If this doesn’t scream healthy, we don’t know what does. Moreover, these are a great pre workout snack or a great snack on-the-go!

Can You Eat Raw Oats

Oats can be eaten raw, in fact, they are delicious in energy balls since they are mixed in with a lot of other ingredients and give a nice chewy texture. We don’t recommend eating raw oats by itself šŸ™‚

Do Energy Bites Need to Be Refrigerated

We prefer that you store the energy bites in a sealed air tight container in the refrigerator. They are completely safe if you choose not to refrigerate, however refrigerating extends there shelf life.

They should be consumed within 1-2 days if left out.

Refrigeration- lasts 1 week.

A great option for these is making a large batch and freezing. Thaw it out for 1 hour on the counter and they will be perfect!

Are Oats Gluten-Free

Oats are naturally gluten-free however, during farming, transportation and storage, gluten-containing grains like wheat, rye and barley can be unintentionally introduced. A lot of gluten-free oat products are clearly labeled so be sure to grab the right bag. We use this one here.
