Chunky Monkey Energy Balls


Loaded with nutrients, antioxidants, omega 3's and a great source of energy for your athlete before games and practices. Remember that small, carb packed meals work best if eaten roughly 2 hours prior to games and practices.

Chunky Monkey Energy Balls
Prep time: 5 mins Total time: 5 mins



1 cup pitted dates
1 very ripe banana
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch salt
¾ cup uncooked oats (gluten free, if needed)
2 Tablespoons ground flax seed or flax meal
2 Tablespoons chia seeds
¼ cup chopped walnuts
2 oz, dark chocolate (over 60%), broken into pieces (vegan, if needed)

Combine all of the ingredients except the walnuts and chocolate in a food processor and process until it forms a paste, adding more oats if the mixture is too soft.

Add the walnuts and chocolate and pulse a few times to incorporate and slightly break up the chocolate and walnuts without chopping them too fine.

Using about a tablespoon of the mixture at a time, roll into balls.
Store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
