Raw Energy Balls Recipe

I haven’t shared with you a food recipe on the blog before, so this is a first! But I was so surprised at how delicious and easy it was to make these Raw Energy Balls that I had to share it with you. I wouldn’t say that I have great expertise in the culinary department, so tasty treats with simple ingredients are a winner for me! I have these balls either before/after I go to the gym, or for a total guilt free snack. They taste SO amazing, and I end up reaching for them over a dark chocolate bar.

If you wanted to make these balls fully vegan, you could try swapping the honey for coconut oil. But be aware I haven’t tried that before! So if you do try it, let me know how that turns out.



100g crunchy peanut butter

100g honey

25g cocoa powder

25g sesame seeds

100g desiccated coconut

extra coconut, cocoa or sesame seeds for rolling in.


  • Put the nut butter and honey in a saucepan and stir over a low heat until melted together
  • Remove pan from heat and stir in the cocoa, coconut and sesame seeds.
  • Mix everything together until it has formed a firm but sticky mixture
  • Allow mixture to completely cool before placing in the fridge for 10 minutes (makes rolling into balls easier)
  • Roll mixture in small balls. Then roll in coating of choice (I choose desiccated coconut) and leave in fridge overnight.

    • Thank you SO much Jo! Such kind words, I’m glad you found me too! 🙂 Haha.

      Honestly, I can’t explain how good these are… and so easy to make! You’ll have to let me know how you find them 🙂 x

  • i never tried energy balls but they sound so good and might try making them myself.


    • They are amazingggg, don’t let their name put you off 🙂 Basically just a ball of chocolate and peanut butter rolled in with a few other good ingredients!

      Cocoa chocolate and nuts and all the other ingredients are known superfoods that give you loads of energy, so that’s why they’re great to take before a workout but I just normally end up eating them as a snack because they’re that good!! Haha.

      Thanks for your comment Elena 🙂
