These Blueberry Energy Balls pack a punch. Loaded with nuts and sweetened with dates they are a delicious snack for the whole family.
I was craving something sweet today so raided the cupboards and fridge and whipped up some of these Blueberry Energy Balls. I used to make these a lot when I was breastfeeding as I was constantly hungry. They were a perfect snack that satisfied my sweet tooth and curved my hunger. I only needed a couple and they kept further cravings at bay for a few hours. These Blueberry Energy Balls are packed with nuts, which will keep you satisfied, and the dates and blueberries make them deliciously sweet.
Finn, like usual, was straight over to help me make them. I put all the ingredients (blueberries, dates, walnuts, almonds and natural peanut butter) into the processor and blitzed until it formed a smooth paste. Once combined I rolled the mixture into 15 balls and then coated them in unsweetened desiccated coconut. During this time Finn licked the mixing bowl clean!
These balls can easily be adapted by changing the nuts to your preference. I tend to use the same ratio using whatever nuts I have available in the house. If you like these then you should also check out my Nut Balls or if you are looking for something less sweet then my Blueberry Breakfast Balls will be perfect.
