The other day I walked past the discounted cart in the grocery store and spotted some ripe bananas. I thought what a great deal, and that it would be incentive to make lots of recipes with them.  Well, a week went by and they continued to get more spotted and brown  every time I looked at them.

Who’s been there? I can’t be the only one. I was really wanting a snack that was easily transportable and offered a quick energy fix. I did some brainstorming and created these delicious energy balls which can help to get rid of some of those ripe bananas.

For a vegan recipe, swap out the raw honey for brown rice syrup.
