Recipe: Raw Energy Balls

Our favorite quick grab treat which are the Raw Energy Balls. Definitely a good replacement for store bought bards and holiday cookies to satisfy that sweet tooth.  The balls are filled with lots of love and nutrients to keep you going all day long, without a sugar crash or hunger for more. 

Ingredients (for 20-25 energy bites, depending on how small you make them):
  • 2 cups oats
  • ¾ cups shredded unsweetened coconut
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds
  • ¼ cup shaved coconuts (if you don’t have this, you can use ¼ more slivered almonds)
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 2 tbsps unsweetened almond Milk
  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 1/3 cup agave 
Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl, mix well.
Add almond milk and mix.
Add agave syrup and warmed almond butter.
Mix ingredients together with your hands.
Create balls out of mixture by packing handfuls back and forth between your hands, until molded into tight balls (about 1 ½ inches in diameter).
Place ball onto pan covered with wax paper.
Repeat until all mixture is all used up.
Move pan into fridge for 3-4 hours.
Enjoy and share the love with friends!
