It's snack time! And today I'm whipping up one of my old favorites: Zenergy date balls!
These little guys serve as the perfect pre/post workout fuel, a snack on the go, or even that sweet bite we sometimes crave after dinner time.
Nuts, oats, dates, almond butter, flaxseed meal, and spices blend together while creating a smooth and deliciously crunchy texture.
The touch of honey adds just the right amount of sweetness to create a satisfying bite.
Roll 'em into balls, pop 'em in the fridge for the week, and BAM! Healthy snacks are prepped and ready. Here's the super easy recipe:
Serving size: 12-15 balls
Prep time: 5 minutes | Total time: 15 minutes
1 cup nuts (I recommend pecans, walnuts, or almonds)
1 cup old-fashioned oats
3 medjool dates
½ cup almond butter
¼ cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/3 cup flaxseed meal
Optional add-ins: 1/3 cup raisins or chocolate chips
1. Add all ingredients into a food processor or blender and mix until it starts to clump together,
2. Unplug your device, and roll out your dough into 12-15 balls.
3. Refrigerate and enjoy for up to 4 days, or freeze and enjoy within 3 months!
