No Bake Energy Balls

Ingredients:


  • 1c sunflower butter (or nut butter of choice)

  • ¼ c honey or 3-4 pitted dates

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon

  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 3 Tbsp pumpkin seeds

  • ¾ c rolled oats (we use gluten-free)

  • 1 Tbsp ground flax/flax meal

  • ~½ c unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)

  • Other add-in options: dried fruit, nuts, dark chocolate bits, chia, hemp…

Directions:

  • Place pumpkin seeds and oats in food processor and pulse until just broken down a bit, a couple of seconds.

  • Add everything else and pulse until everything is evenly combined, you may need to scrape down the sides. It should stick together pretty easily when compressed in your hand.

  • Roll into balls and chill/freeze until ready to eat. I tend to make mine small, no larger than the diameter of a quarter.

  • Optional: you can roll balls in coconut prior to chilling/freezing.
