This healthy snack option is packed with nutrients and ready to super-power your day! You only need a few ingredients to make them, they travel well and are awesome as a pre-workout snack.




  1. Mix all ingredients in a food processor until it forms a dough you can press between your fingers.
  2. Use your hands to roll the dough into 12 balls.
  3. Roll the balls in a cinnamon and coconut sugar, coconut or cocoa powder, if desired.
  4. Store the balls in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or freezer for up to 3 months.


The balls contain 1 tsp of maca each.

You need soft, moist dates in this recipe. If your dates are dry, soak them in hot water for 15 minutes then drain well before using in the recipe.

If you don’t soak the dates and the dough isn’t sticking together, add 1 tsp water, blend again and repeat as needed until it does. 1 tsp of water should do the trick though.

Hemp seeds can be substituted with 1 cup or 150 g of almonds, pecans, walnuts, cashews or sunflower seeds. Mix and match as desired.
