VEGAN ENERGY BALL ASSORTMENT 🌱

Matcha + Coconut and Peanut Butter Balls (raw + choc covered) 

These variety of energy balls are perfect for that high protein on the go snack! There’s no baking required for these either making them the easiest (and most delicious) sweet treat or quick dessert to whip up 👏🏼

Most of the ingredients are ones you’ll already have in the kitchen cupboard + are vegan, oil-free and are made with natural superfoods! 🌱

I made roughly 10 of the matcha and 15 peanut butter since they can be stored in fridge or freezer for 2 weeks (and I have 3 hungry housemates). For the peanut butter balls, I covered half of them in dairy free chocolate to give them something extra - both versions tasted amazing!

Matcha Energy Balls (makes 12)

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup cashews
  • Tsp Matcha tea powder
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds (can sun for chia seeds)
  • Tsp vanilla extract
  • Desiccated coconut (to top)
  • 40g vegan white chocolate (to top)

Method:

  1. In a blender, add oats and cashews and blend for 1 minute until they’re in fine pieces.
  2. Add the hemp seeds, matcha, dates and almond milk - blend for a further 2 minutes until well combined.
  3. Refrigerate the mixture for 10 minutes to make it easier to roll
  4. Roll into even balls using your hands, add toppings and place in freezer for 10 minutes.
  5. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks in fridge + longer term in freezer (can be enjoyed straight from the freezer)



Peanut Butter Balls

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1 cup oats - I used rude health sprouted porridge oats
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter - I used manilife smooth
  • 1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips (or chopped chocolate)
  • Tbsp chia seeds
  • Tbsp hemp seeds
  • 3 tbsp almond milk (add one by one to avoid making too runny)

Method:

  1. Soak dates in water for 5-10 mins then drain and blend in food processor
  2. Add the remainder of your ingredients (oats, peanut butter, seeds, chocolate chips, milk) until roughly blended
  3. Using your hands, roll the mixture into evenly sized balls + place in freezer for 15 minutes to set
  4. If opting to cover some in chocolate, melt 150g of vegan friendly dark chocolate and cover the balls in them - placing back in freezer to reset
  5. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks and freezer for longer term storage (they don’t freeze solid so can be enjoyed straight from freezer)
