Energy Balls.

Energy Balls // Home is with You

I was hooked as soon as I read the word energy. It's something I've been lacking lately and the thought of a yummy snack that could remedy that was all I needed to get me to make these. And boy are they worth it. Not like they are that hard to make, which makes them that much better.

I adapted my energy balls from this recipe. Here's what I used...

≫≫ 1 1/2 cups mixed nuts (with nothing crazy added, just sea salt, this time I just used plain unsalted almonds)
≫≫ 2 tbsp orange juice (I used the "simply" brand)
≫≫ 1/2 tsp cinnamon
≫≫ 1 tsp vanilla
≫≫ honey (about 1/2 cup, but I didn't measure...try to get Grade A honey, the darker the better)

 Place all ingredients in your food processor...

Grind until it the mixture gets to your desired texture. I like mine a little crunchy, but if you'd like it smoother that's fine too. Then just roll roll it up into little balls and store in an air tight container.

I think next time I'll double the recipe...these little things were so good and just perfect for a road trip! Dave wasn't too sure about these at first (they looked a little funny to him), but after he tried them he kept talking about how good they were...so rest assured, these are husband approved.


  1. Never seen anything like these....but they look so good!!

  2. Yum! I made some similar to these but they didn't have honey (and didn't stay together very well). I will have to try this recipe... looks great!

  3. Super easy and looks delicious!! I know what I'll be making this weekend! Thanks for sharing!

  4. These sounds great! Pinning them for sure. Thanks for sharing - I'm always on the lookout for a quick and naturally healthy snack!
