These energy balls, which are also known as energy bites, taste amazing; they are fun to make and are full of feel-good ingredients.
This recipe is vegan, gluten-free, and perfect for eating before working out, as a healthy snack or mid-afternoon snack. They are delicious and very easy to make.
ABOUT THE vegan energy balls recipe
You make these no-bake energy balls in a food processor, which only takes 10-15 minutes. For me, this snack recipe is a smart one, full of good-for-us ingredients.
INGREDIENTS OF THE vegan ENERGY Bites
- Almonds it is better to use unroasted almonds. If you need to substitute, use walnut.
- Dates, pitted dates, 15 or so; it all depends on the size of the dates you find. Check the freshness of the dates; look for dry ones on the outside but still pliable and soft on the inside.
- Pinch of sea salt
- Almond butter, I use homemade almond butter, but you can still use store-bought.
- Hemp seeds or another seed you like to finish the vegan protein balls.
HOW TO MAKE THE ENERGY BALLS?
Put all the ingredients in the food processor until there is a uniform mixture, and when you put it between your hands and crush it, it sticks.
Form the energy balls with your hands and roll them in hemp seeds or any other seeds you like.
🔥 The dates that I like the most are the Medjool dates.

- Once the balls are made, you can cover them with anything, for example, sesame seeds, cinnamon, or, like me, hemp seeds, to give them an extra boost of protein and good things.
- These oat-free energy balls are very easy to digest and chew.
- When you finish rolling the balls, you could cover them in almost anything, for example, sesame seeds, cinnamon, or hemp seeds, as I did, for an extra boost of protein and good things.
