Vegan Goji Berry and Mixed Nut Energy Balls
These are a must try energizing bite to add to your family's weekly meal plans! Great for the kids lunch boxes or an afternoon pick me up!
Prep Time5 mins
Total Time5 mins
- 1 cup medjool dates *Packed with seeds removed
- 2 tbsp almonds
- 2 tbsp cashews
- 1.5 tbsp goji berries
- 1 tbsp vegan chocolate chips
- 1 tbsp cacao nibs
Start by removing the seeds from the medjool dates and adding to the food processor. Follow this by tossing in all of the remaining ingredients.
Turn the food processor on and allow it to do all the work for you. If you need to stop to scrape down the sides, go right ahead. Continue to food process the mixture until a dough like ball is formed.
Once the dough is formed, remove from procesor and take either a 1 tsp or 1 tbsp (depending on the size you want) amount and roll into balls. You can leave as is or you can roll in some coconut shreds as shown. The balls will be quite sticky so I do recommend rollling them in some sort of a powder/shreds. Feel free to use cacao powder, coconut shreds, pulsed nuts, powdered sugar or whatever else you want!
Store in the refrigerator to set and also to keep for the week. I like to keep mine stored in an airtight glass container. These are fantastic for snack lunch boxes, mid-afternooon pick me ups or even as a quick out the door energy boost!
**Can sub out any nuts for seeds.
**Can sub goji berries for any dried fruit you have on hand.
