Energy balls are an easy and delicious healthy snack for you to say “YES!” to whether you’re looking for a pre-workout energizer, a healthy after school snack for your children or an easy grab-and-go breakfast.

Plus, with my simple mix-and-match recipe formula for energy balls, you can make your own unique creation with your favorite ingredients or with whatever ingredients you have on hand.

Makes 12 1-inch energy balls

Table of Contents


  • 1/2 cup of dried fruit

  • 1/2 cup of nut butter

  • 1/2 cup of oats

  • 3 Tablespoons nuts or seeds, finely chopped

  • 2 Tablespoons of tasty mix-ins (like dark chocolate chips, goji berries, unsweetened coconut shreds, or cacao nibs)


  1. Add the dried fruit, nut butter and oats into a food processor. Pulse until they’re thoroughly combined, stirring as needed. Transfer this gooey combo to a bowl.
