No-bake energy booster balls


No-bake energy booster balls

Most energy bars are not really much better than candy and are packed with refined sugar and artificial additives. However, I know that, sometimes, we all need a boost to help get us through the day – especially before a workout. These energy balls are high in healthy fats and natural sugars but completely devoid of any chemical nastiness and are the ideal high energy snack. They are also filling and very tasty! Needless to say, despite being free from unhealthy added sugars, if you were to eat too many of these tasty treats, you could very well end up gaining weight so make sure you practice good portion control and only eat one or two at a time.


100g pecans
75g raisins
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 tablespoon agave syrup
2 oz./50g desiccated coconut
2 tablespoons peanut butter


Put the pecans in a food processor and blitz to crumbs. Add raisins, peanut butter, flaxseeds, cocoa powder and agave syrup, then pulse to combine.

Shape mixture into eight golf ball-sized balls and roll in desiccated coconut to coat. Put in the fridge to firm for twenty minutes and then eat whenever you need a quick energy boost. Store an airtight container for 10 to 14 days.
