5-min energy balls

What do you eat when you’re a bit low on energy in the afternoon?
When you can’t find the time in your day to have a proper lunch, running from one meeting to another..
And how about that moment when you know you want to hit the gym, but your stomach is rumbling, begging you for some food and a quick dose of energy?

You might go for a store bought energy bar, but did you know that you can safe money and eat something 10x tastier and healthier instead?
And it will only take you 5 minutes to make your new favorite snack.

If you’ve read ‘su’s story’ on my website you know that I used to spend half of my life on airplanes flying around the world for work. I think that I’ve tried at least a 100 different types and brands of energy bars, snacks etc during that time.
Some were ok, others were uneatable or ridiculously expensive.
So I just started to make my own energy balls.

Not the biggest of jobs, but still, it would take me a good 20 minutes to weigh all the ingredients and get the balls ready.

Until one Sunday morning when I was preparing, at the same time, granola and energy balls for the week ahead and I noticed that basically both have the same list of ingredients.

Why make life more complicated if it can be easier? From now on my energy balls include su.sana granola and they are not only tastier than the ones I would make before, the are also the fastest in the world to make!

Please trust me, try them and you will never go back again to store bought snacks.
According to Doctor P. – my husband – it’s the one thing that keeps him on his feet rushing from crazy busy days at the hospital to 8pm CrossFit classes.

Buon appetito,
Su

ingredients

  • 4 Medjoul dates (without pit)
  • 50gr. su.sana coconut granola
  • 50gr. roasted dessicated coconut – if you can’t find it already roasted, just roast the dessicated coconut in a dry pan for a few minutes. Keep you eye on it because it burns quite quickly!
  • pinch of salt
  • squeeze of lime juice

preperation

Put the su.sana coconut granola in a kitchen machine and grind it for 20 seconds, in order to get smaller pieces.
Add the medjool dates, a squeeze of lime juice and a pinch of salt.
Turn on the kitchen machine and let it run until you have a sticky ball shaped mixture (it might be necessary to scrape down the sites a few times).
Form small balls of the mixture, however big or small you like. Roll them through the desiccated coconut and stick them in the freezer for 30min.

I prefer to keep the coconut balls in the fridge. You can keep them for 7 days (in the fridge) and about 4 days in an airtight container outside the fridge. Buon appetito!

Ps. the possibilities of these energy balls are endless. Add any type of dried fruit you fancy. Or make them more nutty by adding other crunched nuts
