Energy balls are pretty much the perfect snack, they offer a satiating combination of protein, carbs, and fats. This is “real food” that is quick and easy to prepare.  They are with no doubt one of my favourite snacks.

  • 1 cup oats
  • 3 tbs desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 cup dates, (soaked in 1/2 cup water if needed)
  • 5 tbsp water (use the water your dates were soaked in)
  • 2 tbsp organic cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp flaxseeds
  • 1 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 3 tbsp almonds + hazelnuts + walnuts (or other nuts)

Blend all ingredients in a food processor. If the mixture is not sticky enough add more water or a couple of extra dates. Roll the dough into balls. Stores  in the fridge.


  • 1 caneca de aveia
  • 3 colheres de sopa de coco ralado
  • 1/2 caneca de tâmaras, (demolhadas em 1/2 caneca de água se necessário)
  • 5 colheres de sopa de água (usar a água das tâmaras)
  • 2 c. sopa cacau em pó orgânico
  • 1 c. sopa  de sementes de linhaça
  • 1 c. sopa  de sementes de girasol
  • 3 c. sopa amêndoas, avelas, e nozes  (ou outros frutos secos)

Misturar todos os ingredientes num processador de alimentos. Se a mistura não ficar pegajosa o suficiente adicionar mais água ou tâmaras. Moldar em  pequenas bolas. Conserva no frigorífico.
