Recipe: Nutty Energy Balls

Updated: Jun 5

Here at The Bodhi Clinic, we love energy balls because they're endlessly customizable & super easy to take on the go! Grab a few out of the freezer & pop them into a mason jar to take along with you on busy days, bike rides, etc. They do become soft at room temperature.


  • 1 cup nuts/seeds (Raw almonds, macadamia, sunflower, pumpkin or any combination.)

  • 1/2 cup tightly packed pitted Medjool dates*

  • 2 tablespoons roasted almond butter (or substitute for raw cashew butter, sunflower seed butter, pumpkin seed butter or walnut butter)

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt, or to taste

  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract

  • 5 teaspoons water, or as needed**

  • Shredded coconut or ground shelled pistachios for rolling


  1. Add your nut/seed mixture into a food processor & process into a coarse crumb. Take care not to over-process into butter.

  2. Add the pitted dates to the nut mixture. Process again until the dates are finely chopped (it is easier to process these separately then add to the nut mixture).

  3. Next, add the 2 Tbspns roasted almond butter (or whatever you're using), cinnamon, salt, vanilla/almond extract, & water (as needed) to a bowl & process again until the mixture comes together like a dough. You should be able to easily roll the dough into balls without them feeling dry or crumbly. If the dough is too dry, add more water one teaspoon at a time & continue processing until the mixture moistens to desired consistency.

  4. Scoop up about a tablespoon or so and roll it into balls with the palms of your hands. Then roll the ball in the garnish of choice (shredded coconut, ground shelled pistachios or.....). If the garnishes aren't sticking, try pressing harder or use a little water before rolling.

  5. Chill the balls in the freezer to firm up, or feel free to eat them at room temperature. Leftover balls will keep in an airtight container in the freezer for a few weeks or the fridge for a few day.
