Healthy food habits are good for everyone. Our daily food intake should have a balanced portion of pulses, dairy, fruits, nuts and other things. Being hard core vegetarians, I always try to serve the best food for my family.

Today, I am sharing a healthy recipe with you all. These Energy Balls are so delicious to eat, and comes very handy while you are on a trip, hiking, sports activity and also for kids snacks. I have not used any nuts in this recipe since my kids love to carry them for school snacks, and nuts are not allowed in school. You can use any combination of dried fruits and nuts for this recipe.

Preparation time: 20 - 25 minutes

Difficulty level: Medium

Yield: Around 23 balls of medium size

Ingredients:

  • Oats: 1 cup
  • Desiccated coconut: 1/2 cup
  • Pitted dates: 2 1/2 cup
  • Chia seeds: 4 tbsp
  • Cocoa powder: 2 tbsp
  • Orange zest: 1 tbsp
  • Coconut oil: 2 tbsp

Recipe Instructions:

  • Take the oats and make a coarse powder using a mixie or food processor.
  • Lightly roast the coarsely powdered oats, desiccated coconut and chia seeds separately and allow to cool. Each one would take a few minutes to turn aromatic.
  • Roughly chop the pitted dates and transfer it to mixie jar or food processor. Blend the dates till it turns into a sticky mixture. 
  • Add all the remaining ingredients to the dates mixture in 2 - 3 stages and run the mixie or food processor till everything blends well. I have used the 'whip' setting in the mixie to do this. 
  • Take small portions of dough, and shape them into balls of desired size. 
  • Transfer the Energy balls into an air tight container. They stay well at room temperature for 4 - 5 days. Or, you can store them in the refrigerator for 2 - 3 weeks. 

Tips:

  • Replace the ingredients with dried fruits and nuts of your choice.
