Vegan Energy Balls for Outdoor Adventures
Delicious and easy vegan energy ball recipe, ideal for fuelling outdoor adventures
- 12 dates
- 100 grams oats
- 5 tbsp peanut butter
- 50 ml agave nectar
- 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
- 2 tbsp flax seeds
- 50 grams dark chocolate - cut into shards
Begin by pitting the dates and soaking them in water for 10 minutes.
Once soaked, blend the dates until they form a ball like consistency.
Add all the remaining ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend. Don’t allow all the ingredients to blend completely as you want to have some chunkier bits.
If your mixture is difficult to blend try adding some more peanut butter or agave nectar. If it gets really stuck add a little water, about a teaspoon’s worth at a time to help it blend. Try to add the water a little at a time as too much will stop the balls sticking as well and will affect the taste.
Once fully combined roll the balls to roughly the size of a golf ball.
Kepp in the fridge or eat right away.
