Energy Balls come in different colours and flavours, they look amazing and are some of the easiest and quickest sweet treats you can prepare at home. The raw vegan varieties I am going to share with you make the perfect snack for munchies in between meals, they are delicious and healthy and you can store them in the fridge for up to 3 weeks. All you need is a food processor or high speed blender, a few organic ingredients and 2 loving hands.

I cannot say which of these varieties is my favorite as all 3 are unique and special in their own way: 
Minty-Chocolate, Ginger-Lemon Pistachio and Red Beetroot Vanilla! 🙂

Enjoy!

  4. 2 tbsp raw coconut oil, melted
  5. 1 tbsp agave syrup (optional)
  6. 2 drops essential mint oil
Ginger-Lemon Pistachio Energy Balls (about 20 pieces)
  1. 1 cup raw cashews, soaked
  2. 1 cup finely grounded oats
  3. 1/2 cup medjool dates, deseeded
  4. 2 tbsp agave syrup
  5. 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  6. 1/2 shot ginger juice (or more if you desire more piquancy)
  7. 150 grams of pistachio
Red Beetroot Vanilla Energy Balls (about 15 pieces)

  2. 1 cup medjool dates, deseeded
  3. 1 small beetroot
  4. 1/2 tsp vanilla powder
  5. 1 tbsp agave syrup (optional)
Instructions
  1. Minty-Chocolate Energy Balls
  2. Soak the walnuts for a minimum of 2 hours or better overnight before using them. Once soaked rinse and drain them.
  3. Using a food processor or high speed blender mix the walnuts for a few seconds, so the texture is still crunchy and not ground.
  4. Add the medjool dates one by one while mixing. When everything is mixed well together and you have a sticky paste add the rest of the ingredients, using your hands now to mix all in. Shape your energy balls and coat them in the remaining cacao powder by gently dipping them in the powder until the whole ball is nicely covered with a thin layer.
  5. Ginger-Lemon Pistachio Energy Balls
  6. Soak the cashew nuts for a minimum of 2 hours or better overnight before using them. Once soaked rinse and drain them.
  7. Using a food processor or high speed blender mix the cashews for a few seconds, so the texture is still crunchy and not ground.
  8. Add the medjool dates one by one while mixing.
  9. When everything is mixed well together and you have a sticky paste add the rest of the ingredients, using your hands now to mix all in. Shape your energy balls and coat them in the crushed pistachio.
  10. Red Beetroot Vanilla Energy Balls
  11. Soak the macadamia nuts, for a minimum of 2 hours or better overnight before using them. Once soaked rinse and drain them.
  12. Using a food processor or high speed blender mix the macadamia nuts for a few seconds, so the texture is still crunchy and not ground.
  13. Add the medjool dates one by one while mixing. When everything is mixed well together and you have a sticky paste, set the mixture aside. Make a beetroot puree by mixing the pealed beetroot in your high speed blender or food processor, adding 1 tbsp of agave syrup.
  14. Add the beetroot puree along with the rest of the ingredients to your sticky paste and mix again for few seconds, using your hands now to mix all in.
  15. Shape your energy balls and coat them in the unsweetened coconut flakes.
