Snack time sometimes needs a remake in our house. We can get in such a rut and eventually, certain young members of Team Braddock revolt against the typically healthy options.
To help with this, I created these Blueberry Coconut Energy Balls.
I really love a snack with healthy fats in them, especially in the morning. I just need the satiating fat to tide me over and help control my appetite all day. Plus, my boys need it too or they are hungry in 30 minutes. These snack Blueberry Coconut Energy balls have unsweetened coconut flakes and almond butter to nip hunger in the bud.
I also love that that these Blueberry Coconut Energy Balls include fruit in them in the form of dried blueberries. Have you ever tried dried blueberries? If not, you really need to. They are incredibly delicious and full of great nutrition. I always have some in my pantry.
Store these energy balls in an airtight container in the fridge and take 1-2 with you on the go during the day. They are delicious, satisfying and will power you through the next few hours of your day.
Here’s how you make them:
- ¾ cup dried blueberries
- ¾ cup pitted dried dates
- 1 cup almonds
- ½ cup unsweetened coconut
- ¼ cup hemp seeds (optional)
- ½ cup almond butter
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until ingredients all come together in mound (about 2 minutes).
- Roll dough into ping pong size balls. Refrigerate until ready to eat.
You do need a strong food processor to make this recipe. If you don’t own one, I highly recommend a Cuisinart, like this one. I’ve had this model for over a decade and it still works great.
I hope you enjoy these! If you make them, please take a pic and tag me on social at @JBraddockRD and #MakeHealthyEasy.
