- 1 cup dried fruit (pitted Medjool dates, figs, apricots, etc.)
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup nut butter OR 2 cups nuts
- ½ cup all-natural sweetener (honey, maple syrup, or agave nectar)
- 1/2 cup mix-ins of your choice
- Place rolled oats in a high-speed food processor and process on high for about a minute until you’ve formed oat flour.
- Then, add the rest of the ingredients to food processor and process for another 1 to 2 minutes until your dough is formed. It should look and feel like cookie dough. If it feels too dry, add in a little more sweetener and if it feels a little too wet, add in more rolled oats.
- Using a 1 tablespoon scooper, scoop out the dough and then roll between your palms to form your balls. Repeat until dough is gone.
- Store energy balls by placing on a baking sheet and then into the freezer for 15-20 minutes. Once partially frozen, transfer into a freezer-safe gallon-size bag and store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Tips & Notes
- The texture of energy balls depends on how drippy your nut butter is or how oily your nut of choice is. If balls are too dry add a bit more nut butter or a couple teaspoons of water.
