I made these delicious energy balls with only three ingredients: Raw almonds, dates, and tahini. I rolled them in shredded coconut, but you can use whatever ingredient you want (chopped almonds, sesame seed, cocoa, etc.). They are raw, vegan, lactose free, gluten free and super nutritious.
These energy balls are packed with so many nutrients, so, I can have the freedom to name them Nutrients balls. They’re rich in protein, dietary fiber, polyunsaturated fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids, B vitamins, folate, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, potassium, selenium, etc.
So if you have some nutrient deficit, this recipe is so good for you to try. But be aware that this recipe is a high-calorie snack, so I would recommend eating one or two pieces per meal. I know it sounds like a small quantity, but they are very satiating, you won’t need to reach for another.
You can make lot’s of modifications with these energy balls, like adding cocoa, carob powder, different kind of nuts instead of almonds, seeds, spices, etc. Be creative!
Sometimes, when I don’t have so much time on my hand, I don’t roll the mixture into balls, I just put 1 or 2 tablespoons in a small cup, sprinkle with shredded coconut or something else, and serve it like that.
