These kid-friendly energy balls make a well-balanced snack that’s packed with fiber, protein, healthy fats and affordable, antioxidant-rich frozen blueberries with zero added sugars. Peanut butter + maple syrup is already a winning combo, and the dash of cinnamon + splash of vanilla kick it up several more notches!

Course: Breakfast
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Chill: 30 minutes
Servings: 16 balls


  • 1 ½ cups rolled oats
  • 1 ½ cups brown rice crispy cereal (no sugar added)
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries (not thawed)
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp. sea salt
  • 4 Tbsp. chia seeds


  • Line a large plate or cooking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine the oats, crispy rice and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl and lightly mix with a spatula.
  • Place the frozen blueberries, peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla and sea salt in a food processor or blender. Blend until somewhat smooth or a thick liquid forms. Add the chia seeds and pulse until just combined.
  • Add the blueberry mixture to a large mixing bowl, scraping the edges with a spatula and then gently mixing to combine with the oats and crispy rice.
  • Lightly wet your hands with a small splash of water (but not too much). Roll the mixture into small balls, about 1-2 inches in diameter. Place the balls on the parchment-lined plate.
  • Allow the balls to set in the freezer for atleast 30 minutes, or until they hold their shape well, and then enjoy!


  • Store in the fridge and consume within 2-3 days. Keep in mind that the longer they rest in the fridge, the softer and more pillowy they'll become.
  • You can sub any nut butter or sunflower seed butter for a nut-free version.
  • Feel free to sub local honey for the maple syrup (or omit it entirely).
  • You can also add 2 scoops of your favorite protein powder in the first step to increase the protein content.
  • Not a fan of blueberries? Use frozen raspberries, strawberries or blackberries instead!
  • If you can’t find sugar-free brown rice crispy cereal, either omit it or replace it with 1 ½ additional cups of rolled oats.
