Hi ! Who needs a bit more energy during the day ? I definitely do 🙂 Especially during these hot summer days in Paris, when it feels like there is no breathable air (thanks, continental climate and pollution ! ).
So, what’s an energy ball ? They are small, healthy snacks, packed with nutrients and often with super foods. They generally contain a mix of plant-based protein, healthy fats, carbs, fibers and anti-oxidants.
They are small (you can eat them in a couple of bites !), they help to give a boost of energy before or after a workout or they replace your normal snack during a working day.
This is a very quick, healthy and delicious recipe of vegan energy balls. I’ve chosen to use berries, guarana and tiger nut but they can be customised using the ingredients you have at home.
Here’s the recipe for about 8 to 10 balls of 25- 30 grams each.
150 gr dates
50 gr raw, unsalted almonds
50 gr tiger nut flakes I used La Noix Tigrée Croc Nature
4 teaspoons cranberry powder
4 teaspoons raspberry powder
1 teaspoon guarana powder
Using a blender, mix the almonds until you have quite a fine meal.
Then add all the other ingredients and mix until you have a smooth texture.
Form 8-10 balls of 25-30 grams and let rest in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
For the coating, mix 2 teaspoons almond meal with 1 teaspoon berries powder and roll the balls evenly in the mixture.
Keep refrigerated and eat within 2-3 days.
