These no-bake balls taste like they are made of cookie dough, but they’re made with simple, wholesome ingredients. Dates bind them together, oats add fibre, and walnuts and almond butter pack them with protein and healthy fats.
- 1 1/2 cups oat flour
- 1 Tablespoon Optimal Essentials Immune powder
- 1 cup walnuts
- 1/3 cup well-stirred almond butter
- 10 soft Medjool dates
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (sugar free) - optional
In a food processor, place the oat flour, walnuts, almond butter, dates, vanilla, water, and salt. Pulse until the mixture sticks together when pinched. If it’s too crumbly, pulse in more water, 1 teaspoon at a time.
Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the chocolate chips. Use a 2-tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop and roll into balls.
Store extra energy balls in the fridge. They also freeze well. To thaw, leave them at room temperature until soft.
