Chocolate Almond Energy Balls

One of the keys to staying off refined sugar, and having a little energy boost throughout the day are these delicious little balls of nutrients. We always have a couple of different types of energy balls in the house, but these are definitely my go-to when I need a boost. I love grinding sunflowers in the food processor, then adding the other ingredients. Gets the darkest cocoa you can – you will have higher anti-oxidant power, too.


    • 1/2 cup of raw sunflower seeds. 
    • 3/4 cup dates, soaked in water
    • 1/2 cup almond butter
    • 1 cup almonds
    • 1/2 cup walnuts
    • 1//3 cup dark cocoa
    • 2 tbsp hemp seeds. 
    • 1/4 cup coconut
    • Almond milk to thin. 


Soak the dates in warm water, draining the liquid before use. Puree sunflower seeds to a fine crumb, then add walnuts, almonds and almond butter, walnuts dates, and cocoa and hemp seeds scarping sides of food processor. Roll into 2 inch balls, coating in coconut if preferred.
