  1. They sound great but it calls for a 1/2 cup of honey won’t that make me gain weight raise blood sugar I weigh 127 to 130 back in forth, do you have any tips . thanks

    1. Hi Brenda – 1/2 cup of honey for the entire recipe is not a lot per ball. But…that being said, you can cut it back to less than a 1/2 cup. Or you can substitute Brown rice syrup. The honey serves more than one purpose…first it sweetens them energy balls, it also helps hold them together and lastly high quality honey helps build your immune system and is actually good for you. But just because something is good for you, doesn’t mean that you can eat unlimited servings. One serving per day = 1 or 2 energy balls. Keep the rest in the refrigerator or freeze for longer term.
