Life is Better with Sprinkles!

It was hubby’s birthday this weekend and we celebrated both days with friend n family.

So just like every year, this year too I made homemade return gifts and they were these Quick Chocolate Oats Date Energy Balls or Bites that I coated with sprinkles on top/side!

Who doesn’t like SPRINKLES !!!

Oats Date Energy Balls with sprinkles

It’s a small tradition (homemade return gift) that my mom started for special occasions and a way to say ‘Thank You’ to close family n friends who became a part of our celebrations.

So I thought why not continue to tradition here and every year, I make a small handwritten ‘thank you note’ along with homemade treats for everyone who attend and make our celebrations even more extra special.

This year I decided to send them back with these delicious Quick Chocolate Oats Date Energy Balls.

how to make Chocolate Oats Date Energy Balls

They are SUPER easy to make and TOTALLY delicious.

I mean what else can be easier than a ‘no-cook’, ‘no-bake’ treat that’s ready in 10 minutes, serves a crowd, healthy and above all you get a lot of ‘Aweeee – they are so Cute’ kinda reactions too 🙂

(The only thing required is pulse everything together in food processor – pic above).

Once you’ve pullsed everything together, divide the dough into equal portions (big/small) and shape them as per choice.

I simply rolled all of them in a circle and then flattened some of them to resemble a disc shape.

Then I coated them with a sprinkle + hemp seed mix (totally optional) and packed them in cute gift bags.

I always make some extra for us too as they usually disappear very easily 😉

They can be kept in an air-tight jar/container in the refrigerator for upto a month (just don’t coat them).

Here’s a platter that we’re going to enjoy with some hot masala chai and maybe a Netflix movie to drive away the Monday blues.

Seriously, do you also get the Monday Blue aches since Sunday afternoon?

Also, they would make a fabulous and healthy treat for your loved ones on Galentine’s Day or even Valentines.

Just gift wrap them in clear bags with some pink ribbon and you’ll be getting some extra hugs in return.

Or they could make a GREAT After School Snacks for Kids.

” Shhhhhh – Don’t tell them it’s Healthy “
