These ‘raw energy balls’ are a great healthy alternative to chocolates and biscuits, when the body gets that sugar craving, or you are on the go and need a little ‘something healthy’ to tide you over until your next meal.  These are also a great treat pre or post your gym workout, especially by adding some protein powder to enhance the nutritionally value to this power balls!

Makes between 10-16 balls depending on size


1 cup walnuts/cashews
1 cup pitted dates
2 tbsp lemon juice
Sprinkling of cinnamon, nutmeg, himalayan salt


  1.  In a food processor blend the walnuts
  2. Add all the other until the mixture has come together
  3. Empty into a bowl and start to roll into balls (to the size you like).  I would use gloves to do this as it will give you a better round shape with sticking to your fingers.

Leave plain or you can roll in desiccated coconut or sesame seeds.

Flavour options:

– Chocolate:  add 1 tbsp raw cacao powder
