Step by step Raw Energy Balls!

Hey guys, as promised yesterday I did a step by step raw energy ball line up!!
To try and convince you to make these if you haven’t already!!

First grab whatever ingredients you want – should include some kind of nut and soaked or Medjool dates.
My mix included raw almonds, raw cashes, maca powder, gogi berries, coconut, cacao nibs!

Put the nuts in the food processor and blend until powder (or a little chunky, that’s how I like mine)


Once they are all grinded, add the other ingredients (except dates)
Keep grinding until it has reached desired texture!

Add in dates
Then blend blend blend.  I had to add a few more dates and some agave.

Until it looks something like this!!
Then roll into whatever size or shape you want!
They are so full of good stuff, great for a snack anytime!
These flavors tasted really “earthy” all together,
which I thought was fine, but some other people didn’t love them!!

Remember what I said too, these take about 10 mins start to finish including clean up! So try them today!!

Lots more recipes over at Averies site!
A few other things too! 

Katie at Chocolate Covered Katie has a VITAMIX giveaway going on, so go visit!

    Not much on this, blogging, and playing some hockey! : )

  2. those balls look delicious! i'd love to try them sometime!

    thanks for mentioning the bake sale for Haiti on your blog and helping spread the word. We'd definitely love more bakers and soon bidders!

    thanks too for donating your peanut butter cups!

    :) Diana

  3. Those look so easy to make and so delicious! I've never tried maca powder. Could be interesting!

    What is the nut to dried fruit ratio?

  4. Oh wow - those raw energy balls look DE LISH! I'll have to try them this week!

    Found you the The Chic Life, I'm doing the bake sale too - Diana had such a great idea with this!

    So happy to have found your blog. I just developed a lactose intolerance last year, so it's been challenging learning to live dairy free. At first, I thought it wouldn't be a big deal.... apparently I didn't realize how many things I eat actually HAVE dairy in them! Definitely a follower now :)

    Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

  5. YUM! Love the step by step. The ingredients to make these balls are just so pretty. I just bought some raw cashews...I may need to make some of these pups up

  6. I want to make these too. They look delicious and healthy!

  7. I can't tell you how long I have wanted to make these. I just need to get on it and pull out the handy food processor. They seem like such a great little snack! :)

    Hope you are having a great weekend darling.

  8. Looks like some awesome energy balls :) Verry yummy.
    I like making raw brownie batter balls ;)

    I'm just relaxing this sunday! with some wine...of course ;)

  9. Just relaxing this Sunday - I don't feel like doing much of anything :-)

  10. WOW... not only do they sounds amazing to eat but they seem to be easy to make! I'm going to have to try this out. Thanks

  11. Those look super simple to make, not to mention yummy. Thanks for sharing, going to try a make some this week:)

  12. I've been seeing these raw balls around and I keep meaning to try them. They look pretty delicious to me. How many of these do you usually eat for a snack? 1 or more than 1?

  13. Those look delicious!! I can't believe anyone wouldn't like them! Mmm!

  14. These look great. Every time I scrolled down the pictures made these look better and better. We will definitely have to try these. I would like to see more rough amounts of what to use as I tend to throw in more of what I like and the first time through I would like to have a better idea of what it is suppose to taste like ;)

  15. Hey you! These raw balls looks really great! I need you to pack me some up in my goody box! Ha ha! I have some dates and nuts I shloud make this since everything else seems to be falling through this weekend. Blah! Have a good Monday!

  16. Thanks for the shout and your balls look very yummy :) Glad you've gotten in on the ball action :)

  17. Oh yum! I really need to get a food processor! This recipe is phenomenal!

  18. mmm LOVE me some delicious balls (TWSS) seriously though, those look so easy to make and so graet! they wold be a great snack to bring to work, no?


  19. wow looks like a great and healthy snack! thanks for sharing and making it look so easy!

  20. Those little gems look great!

    Well done and enjoy!

  21. hey! those raw energy balls look amazing :D i just got a food processor (after ours broke!) yesterday so this will definitely be made. you have such an awesome blog- my little sister is lactose intolerant and struggles to make her favorite treats taste genuine! i really cant wait to read more and find out delicious things i could make her! have a wonderful monday xoxo soph

  22. While I was not sleeping last night I thought about making some protein bars JUST LIKE THIS. YOM.

  23. I really dig the protein ball concepts. A bar is usually too much for. I like to eat bits and bites. This looks interesting, but I need to figure out what maca powder is. Can you omit it?

  24. Congrats on making #3 of the Foodbuzz top 9 :)

  25. Just found your blog and I love this recipe! I'm a big fan of using dates so I'll have to give them a try. I'm also baking some granola for Diana's bake sale :) have a great day!

  26. I have made something similar to this before and have found that instead of using any Agave to moisten, adding one tablespoon of warm water at a time to the mixture can make them nice and doughy and easy to roll! And then no need for the sweetener!

  27. Those look like a tasty snack idea, thanks for the tip! :)

  28. Thank you SO MUCH for this! It really inspired me. A lot.

    Last night I soaked some dates and this morning I made my own balls. They're so delicious, I started wondering where they'd been all my life...


    P.s. I went a bit crazy and use almonds, pepitas, cashews, raw cacao powder, dried goji berries & soaked medjool dates.

    I ended up rolling half of them in dessicated coconut and the other half in a mixture of white sesame seeds & black chia seeds!

    Thanks again :)

  29. These sound awesome! Thanks :)


  30. If you add a little coconut oil, it helps with prolonging shelf life as it's natural anti-oxidants keep em fresh longer. Not to mention coconut oil suppresses appetite and is an awesome source of energy.

  31. Adding some organic coconut oil provides healthy fatty acids and aids with shelf life also!
