Raw Energy Balls

The basic recipe is very simple with only 3 ingredients:

1 cup almonds (or nuts of choice)
1 cup dried dates
1 pinch of salt (optional)

Blend the almonds in your blender or food processor into a flour, add the dates and blend with salt into a sticky dough.

You can add other ingredients of choice:

Lime juice, cacao powder, cacao nibs, nuts, seeds, oats, coconut oil, grated coconut. If it gets too sticky just add more of the dry ingredients and if it’s too dry add some more dates, coconut oil or lemon juice.

Roll the balls between your palms and afterwards you can roll them in grated coconut, fruit powder, chopped almonds, sesame, cacao, melted chocolate or whatever you like.

An other variation is to insert one cherry in each ball.

These are my favorite variations:

In addition to the basic recipe there’s also 1 tbsp coconut oil, 1 tbsp lemon juice in the dough. Each ball contains one cherry and the balls were dipped in melted white chocolate and in grated coconut.
These balls are made by using the basic recipe. I rolled them in melted white chocolate and afterwards in grated coconut. The blue colour is created by adding butterfly pea powder to the grated coconut and the pink colour is created by adding raspberry powder to the grated coconut.
These balls were made by using the basic recipe with 1 tbsp coconut oil and 1 tbsp lime juice. The balls were dipped in liquid cacao butter which was coloured with cacao powder (brown), mathca powder (green) and dragonfruit powder (pink).
