No Bake, High Octane Energy Balls!


Share Button

Here’s a healthy nut-based snack for you.  You probably see different forms of these Energy Balls at your local health food store or even at your coffee shop…and a hefty price tag.  The other day I saw a sesame-based bar and it was $3.99!

Make your own!  For way less!  Here’s how!


  • 2 cups nuts  & seeds (organic almonds, pecans, walnuts or whatever you have on hand.  Walnuts are great because they contain essential omega 3 fatty acids and this energy bar isn’t baked so the essential fats aren’t harmed)
    • I used 1 cup walnuts and 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 T ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup organic pitted medjool dates
  • 1/2 cup organic figs (great source of calcium!)
  • 2 T ghee or coconut oil
  • 1.5 T organic maple syrup

Put ALL ingredients into a food processor with the “S” blade.  Turn it on and let er rip!  After about a minute, open it up, scrape down the sides and let it go again.

You can eat it just with a spoon, or form it into balls as pictured.  Store in a glass jar in the fridge for up to 10 days ( if they last that long).

PS – this could totally be SCD legal if you use honey instead of maple syrup.  I only used the maple because our honey comes in big pails and I didn’t want the extra job of getting a new jar of honey out of the pail.
