These no-bake Apple Pie Energy Balls are easy to put together and give you the energy you need to power your body through the afternoon.
Easy black beans
This cream bean is great for a party or picnic. Smoked paprika and ground chipotles add a strong, earthy flavor, but if you don’t have other spices on hand, you can use regular paprika and cayenne.

Dates give these no-bake energy bars all the sweetness you need. Each square provides a high dose of protein thanks to the peanut butter and peanuts, as well as the fiber from the toasted oats. Kids love the crunchy bites with crunchy nuts.

These one-bowl no-bake energy bars ensure a quick way to get through long meetings, intense workouts, or a mid-afternoon energy slump.
