I love energy balls; they are fun to make and extra fun to eat. These carrot peanut butter energy balls are the newest to my adventures when it comes to energy balls.
Carrots and peanut butter… who would have ever thought that these two foods were made for each other? My sister actually turned me on to the whole carrots and peanut butter combo. Yeah, it is one of her favorite snacks, which she likes to eat.
It actually is a great combination. Have you ever tried the two together?
So, I was thinking about energy balls and trying to think of a new combination. I have made the chocolate chip and coconut combination and absolutely loved them. But, I knew that there had to be other combinations that would make a great energy ball. Then this peanut butter and carrot combination came to mind.
