These energy balls are are perfect snack for a quick energy boost or as a pre-workout snack. They're also decadent enough to double up as a dessert - win win!
They're simple to make, a source of protein and healthy fat, cheaper than ready-made alternatives and contain only 3 plant-based ingredients.
It helps to have a decent blender for the nuts, if you don't have one just sub the nuts for pre-made nut butter, or just take your time blending the nuts and not let your blender over heat. If it starts getting hot and making a terrible screeching sound its probably a sign to stop! (I speak from experience and two blenders later…)
For this recipe I use almonds, but I also make these with peanuts or a mixture of different nuts. Just use what you like best - it's all zen!
Sometimes I add a sprinkle of cinnamon and if I’m feeling extra fancy I will decorate them by rolling in icing sugar, cocoa powder or ground nuts.
