Energy Balls

These energy balls are a standard recipe that is quick and easy.

I am lucky to own a thermomix which makes the mixing process even simpler. You can try with a standard food processor but may need to work in stages.

Energy Balls


  • 1 cup dates soaked for 30 minutes
  • 1 cup cashews soaked for 30 minutes
  • 1 cup raisins or cranberries
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 2 Tbs cacao or dark cocoa
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup coconut oil as needed


  1. Finely chop all the ingredients and mix together in a large bowl. (This is easier if you have a high powered processor or blender.) Add enough coconut oil to bind the ingredients together. Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour to chill.

  2. Take scoop fulls of mixture and roll into balls. Add a little blackberry powder (or favourite berry powder) or cocoa/coconut for rolling on the outside of the balls.
  3. Chill to serve.
  4. Keep indefinitely in the freezer and for weeks in the fridge.
