Over the years I’ve spent who knows how much money on all sorts of different sports nutrition bars. Here is a recipe for some great energy-boosting balls.
- 1/2 cup dates
- ½ cup pecans
- 1/3 cup coconut
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- ¼ cup ground flax
- Place all ingredients in your food processor and blend. You can also hand chop or use a regular blender. I don’t have a food processor and I enjoy chopping.
- Form into 1 inch balls and roll in coconut.
If it’s too thick add ¼ cup of warm water and blend again.
You can mix and match different ingredients. Just remember it needs to have a sticky enough binder (dates, peanut butter) to hold it together.
Throw the cooled power balls in a mason jar, put a bow on it, and you’ve got your gift.
