Serves 50

These energy balls are full of goodness and natural sugars – guaranteed to get you off to a good start. Roll the mixture into small bite size balls or it also works well cut into bars.

Add all the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix until well incorporated. Add in the wet ingredients and combine by hand or pulse in a blender until a sticky dough has formed.
To make the energy balls, dampen your hands and roll about a tablespoon of the mixture between your palms to form a bite-size ball. Repeat until all the mixture is gone.
Pour the cacao nibs or cocoa powder, whichever you prefer onto a plate and coat each of the balls in the topping of your choice.
For best results, chill in the fridge for about an hour before eating, if you can wait that long! Store in the fridge or freezer, ready for a healthy treat whenever you fancy!

    Hi Donal, would regular dates work with this recipe, can’t find any medjools where I live! Would I have to adjust the amount?

  • Lisa Ferrick

    Did you ever find out the nutritional content ?

    • I’m afraid it’s not my area of expertise but if anyone else knows how to do it let me know!
