Energy Ball Tips

Here are a couple tips for energy ball success:

  • Use soft, fresh dates. Soft dates help hold the recipe together and add sweetness without the need for added sweeteners. Medjool dates are the best but sayer, deglect noor and honey also work well. Just make sure you pit them first.
  • Soak dates if needed. If you only have hard, dry dates, you can still use them in the recipe if you soak them first. To soften them, place the dates in a bowl and add enough hot water to cover them. Let them soak for 15 minutes then drain well and proceed with the recipe.
  • What if the dough is too wet? If you’re making energy balls and the dough is too wet, you can add additional oats, nuts, cocoa powder, ground flax or protein powder to help reach the right consistency.
  • What if the dough is too dry? If the dough is too dry and crumbly to roll into balls, add a couple teaspoons of water, blend and check it again. Continue until it reaches the right consistency to roll.
  • Use a scale. If you have a kitchen scale, use it to measure ingredients for best results.

Apple Pie Energy Balls

To make these apple pie balls, you’ll need both dates and dried apple rings. You’ll need to use soft and chewy apple rings, not crunchy ones. If your dried apple seems to hard, soak it first in hot water before using. Same goes for the dates, make sure you use nice, soft dates in this recipe otherwise it won’t hold together.

You can use either pecan or walnuts and other than that all you need is a few spices. So easy!

Dates need to be fresh and moist to hold the balls together. If they’re very dry and hard, soak in very hot water for 20 minutes and then drain before using.
