The Cinnamon Jungle Munch from Envirokidz is our favorite and it packs so much cinnamon flavor that it is the perfect thing to use in a variety of dishes aside from simply eating it as cereal. I pulsed two boxes of this cereal to use in baking (in the place of graham cracker crumbs) and with the rest I made an out of this world Cinnamon Raisin Energy Balls recipe that it will have your kids jumping for joy each afternoon after school. I used what I had on hand so by all means if you don’t have raisins- skip them- or instead use dried cranberries or plums or mangos. Pulsed diced mangos are the bomb:) just a little sidenote! The key to these energy balls are getting them tightly packed so that they don’t fall apart on the kids while they eat. Pulsing the oats and cereal beforehand allows for the texture to stay intact but creates a better environment for the “glue” to hold all the pieces together. The “glue” I am referring to is NOT corn syrup but rather honey and peanut butter with a hint of pure vanilla extract. These balls are a delight. They will put a smile on your face and energy in your body. The Envirokidz line is perfect just as is but when you want to mix things up a little bit opt for these easy No-Bake Cinnamon Raisin Energy Balls.



No-Bake Cinnamon Raisan Energy Balls
  • 1 cup pulsed/ground EnviroKidz Jungle Munch in Cinnamon
  • 1 cup pulsed gluten free or regular quick cooking oats
  • ½ cup raisins, pulsed
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1 TBSP honey butter
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mash (yes mash with your hands) until you can easily form the mixture into balls. Store the energy balls in a ziploc container in a cool dry place for up to 2 weeks (if they can last that long in your house:)

  9. Maureen | Orgasmic Chef

    I think those little energy balls are terrific. I love the cinnamon in them.

  10. Veronica's Kitchen

    I agree with you that kids need to eat healthy to keep them going but it’s so easy to feed them with chocolate and chips. These no bake balls are great ideas and easy to prepare!

    It can definitely be a challenge to provide kids with the “fuel” and the proper nutrition they need to help their growing bodies and provide what they need on a daily basis. I have a teenage son who plays competitive soccer non-stop. He needs calories, and lots of them, and it can be easy to turn to more convenience foods to provide the fuel since it is quick. Love your energy balls and this would be a good healthy protein energy source. Thanks for sharing.

    it does sound like a very good company—working for sustainability. And, the allure of winning a trip to Costa Rica! I visited there once, about 3 years ago. A beautiful country and people. Pura Vida!

    In this world we should all be able to get organic, food. It’s sad that companies often don’t even mention what’s in their products. I would love your energy balls and my husband definitely too. I can imagine giving folks those when they leave the gym after work out. =)

    I’m sure we would enjoy these energy balls.
