Keep rolling until you’ve used up all the mixture. As you finish each of the energy balls, place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. This will prevent them from sticking and make cleanup time a breeze.

Step Five:

Once all the balls are on the baking sheet, pop it into the refrigerator. Let the energy balls chill for about 30-35 minutes or until they’re slightly firm. This will help them hold their shape and make them easier to handle.

And that’s it – you’ve made your own batch of no-bake energy balls! They’re perfect for a quick snack anytime you need a boost of energy. Enjoy!
