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.

Recipe:

Ingredients:

100g crunchy peanut butter

100g honey

25g cocoa powder

25g sesame seeds

100g desiccated coconut

extra coconut, cocoa or sesame seeds for rolling in.

Instructions:

  • 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.

    • 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 🙂
