High Fiber Breakfast Vegan Energy Balls

Hello Foodies,
          This deliciously nutrient packed energy bites are all crazy easy to make with just four ingredients- chia and flax seeds, dates, and raisins. They will be done and ready to snack on before you know it! They taste just like peanuts Laddu! Vegan, gluten free, nuts free, dairy free, and packed with essential nutrients. These decadent energy balls are made using two easy ways, one is vegan, and the other is vegetarian and sugar-free. Just four healthy ingredients, easy, instant, healthy, and gluten-free! It's the best gluten-free, sugar-free, vegan, and vegetarian energy bites recipe I ever prepared! Only 72 calories per energy ball, plus 2 g of protein, 9 g of carbs and 3.3 g of dietary fiber!  This soft, chewy healthy-ish seeds bites are energy boosting, super filling, and are perfect to incorporate into pre-workout snacks. Almost all of the carbs in chia seeds are fiber. Its soluble fiber absorbs a large amount of water and expands in your stomach, which increases fullness and slow the absorption of food. Store these energy balls in an airtight container for an easy grab-and-go snack that is packed with protein, fiber, and tons of flavor. 
             They are about 72 cal per ball, and I use two as a morning snack if I plan a workout. McDreamy loves them too, and we both find them to be incredibly filling and will hold you for quite a few hours between meals and perfect for pre-run fuel. They have become our actual breakfast most days. They are simply the guilt-free, energy hit, and the perfect snack!

How do Chia seeds and Flaxseeds give you energy?
            These tiny Chia seeds are packed with protein, fiber, and Omega-3s to provide a balanced ratio of nutrition! If taken before a workout, it helps to avoid spikes and drops in insulin levels and fuel your body, keeps you satiated or fulfills throughout your workout. 
             Flaxseeds have been shown to help control blood sugar levels, decrease LDL cholesterol, and promote weight loss. Adding flax seeds to your diet promotes regular bowel movements and can improve your digestive health. It is a good source of plant-based protein and can be an alternative protein source for people who do not eat meat. 
              Also sometimes I keep adding ingredients like ground quinoa and sunflower seeds or chocolate chips. So, guys, you are 10 minutes away from a delicious batch of healthy energy balls. Pin this today!
