One of the hardest aspects for me on the FODMAP diet is finding healthy grab and go snacks. These are my favorite for just that reason plus they keep me full when I’m out and need a quick snack that I know will give me energy.
I know there are a TON of variations of energy ball recipes but the majority of them are not low FODMAP due to the high quantities of dried fruit or high FODMAP nuts like cashews. This is my basic recipe for energy balls that can be built on. I think next time I’ll try unsweetened coconut flakes. What should I try next? Any other ideas?
I feel like this is a perfect time to go on a rant about the majority of packaged granola bars. It’s shocking to me how consumers are tricked into thinking these bars are healthy when they are really bona fide candy bars. Sometimes these actually have more sugar than candy bars! Plus with all the processed ingredients and sugar your energy will crash and burn. Who wants that? I know I don’t! This is why I turn to healthier options like these peanut butter energy balls.
