If you’re looking for a low calorie, nutrient dense snack, Homemade Energy Balls are great! Energy balls are bite-sized morsels made from healthy ingredients like oats, nuts, coconut, and dried fruit. Snacking on energy balls packed with protein and fiber can help you stay on track with your health goals.

To make homemade energy balls, simply combine the following:

  • 3/4 cup of almonds
  • 1/4 cup of cashews
  • 3/4 cup of almonds
  • 1 1/2 cup of dates
  • 1/3 cup of shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup of cocoa powder or cacao nibs melted

Roll the mixture into balls and store in the refrigerator for a convenient, wholesome snack. Calorie content varies depending on ingredients and size, but 1 energy ball will usually have around 100 calories.
