I’m pretty sure that the first recipe I wrote for Marina’s blog was a recipe on energy balls… well, I’m back with another one! I’ve created a sweet treat that’s perfect for this time of year, when you need a healthy treat amidst all of the Christmas decadence. These balls willkeep you “snacking” happy & healthy!
Perfect to whip out of the freezer when guests show up unannounced, easy to make, good for you, and sweetly satisfying. Plus, pumpkin is a fruit, making it highly nutritious and rich in vitamin A (great for our immune system, and helps to keep our internal organs working properly).
Don’t forget to make a double batch, because you might be forced to share them!
Store them in your freezer for easy snacking.
– 2 cups raw almonds
– about 16–20 Medjool dates (or regular dates soaked in hot water for 30 min)
– 1/2 cup pure pumpkin puree
– 1/4 cup chia seeds
– 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
– 1–2 tsp pumpkin pie spice mix
– splash of pure vanilla extract
– pinch of pink Himalayan salt
1- Blend all of the ingredients in a food processor, or blender, until they all come
together and you get a sticky consistency.
2- Roll them into bite-size balls.
3- Store them in the freezer, in an airtight container. They’re best eaten cold!
