Energy Balls

Here is my recipe for some super healthy snacks you can make in about 3 minutes for while you are on the go! They have been fuelling my running since I made them and I am completely obsessed. Just throw the ingredients in a bowl together, mix then form into a ball shape. Simple!

All these recipes make 6, so if you fancy more or less just adjust the measurements!

Chocolate

Ingredients IMG_0436

  • 50g Oats
  • 50g Cocoa Powder
  • 50g Nut Butter
  • 30ml Date Syrup

Pumpkin Spice

Ingredients IMG_0433

  • 50g Oats
  • 50g Pumpkin Seeds
  • 50g Nut Butter
  • 2tsp Cinnamon, 1tsp Ginger, 1/2 tsp Nutmeg
  • 30ml Date Syrup

Cherry Bakewell

Ingredients IMG_0430.JPG

  • 50g Oats
  • 50g Ground Almonds
  • 50g Nut Butter (almond works best)
  • 100g Cherries (dried or glace)
  • 30ml Date Syrup

Coconut & Lime

Ingredients IMG_0431.JPG

  • 50g Oats
  • 50g Desiccated Coconut (& a little extra for decoration)
  • 50g Nut Butter
  • Zest of 1 Lime, and Juice of 1/2 a Lime
  • 15ml Maple Syrup

Any brand/ any nut for the nut butter will do; if you are on a budget Morrison’s own peanut butter is fine. Same goes for the syrup, any will do! I use Whole Earth 3-nut butter because this brand uses sustainable palm oil (but it is quite an expensive), and date syrup because it is unrefined and I think it tastes nicer.

I hope you enjoy making these fun snacks! If it looks a little dry, add a little more syrup, and if it feels a little too sticky add some more oats. They are good to store for up to a week, in a dry airlock container at room temperature.

That’s all for now!
