These simple energy balls are a great kitchen and recipe staple!
A food processor or blender will help create the perfect consistency to bind these simple energy balls. The dates and vanilla extract combine for a subtle sweetness that goes perfectly with pumpkin seeds, shredded coconut, and tahini. It’s a great snack to make on the weekends; just save a batch in the freezer for later and keep a batch in the fridge for your current week for a quick snack.
Dates are really the star of this recipe, and here’s why: they provide sweetness of the same caliber as their refined sugar counterparts, and they contain loads of minerals. Dates not only taste fantastic, they’re also very nutrient dense and are a great pantry staple to have in your cooking arsenal.
