Energy Balls without Peanut Butter


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • ½ cup pecans
  • 15 dates pitted Medjool dates
  • ½ cup brown rice syrup
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Burst oats into a coarse meal in the bowl of a food processor. Add pumpkin seeds, walnuts, and pecans; pulse 10 to 15 times, until chunks are desired size.


  • Step 2

    Toss dates into the food processor and mix for 30 seconds. Pour rice syrup in slowly, with the processor running, until combined and starting to ball up.

  • Step 3

    Transfer to a bowl and mix in chocolate chips, coconut, raisins, and sunflower seeds. Pull off dough in 25 gram sections and roll into balls. Place in a single layer on a cookie sheet; it’s okay if they touch but make sure they are not stacked.

  • Step 4

    Refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours before serving.
