Energy Balls


I love snacking. Who doesn't? But because I am leaning towards wanting to eat more healthy and living a healthier lifestyle, I decided to put together a healthy snack similar to the "Dark chocolate protein balls" recipe from the Knorisheats website alongside an array of other healthy food recipes (check it out). I came up with my version of the recipe, a little more fruitier and minus the chocolate but just as tasty!


  • 3 tablespoons of Mayver's dark chocolate super spread
  • 1/2 cup of natural peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 handful of chopped dates 
  • 1 cup of apricot toasted muesli or plain old fashioned oats
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons of pepitas
  • 1/2 cup Dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons of mixed dried fruit and nuts
  • Coconut sugar

  • Combine the dark chocolate spread, peanut butter, honey and chopped dates with a food processor until smooth and combined
  • Transfer the mixture into a large bowl and stir in the museli or rolled oats, chia seeds, pepitas, dried cranberries, mixed dried fruit and nuts until evenly combined. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 mins
  • Once the mixture is cool (and easier to work with), use a spoon to shape it into your desired size of energy balls and then roll them into some coconut sugar (as little or as much as you like)
  • Place them in an air tight container and back in the fridge to set
Happy healthy snacking!
