Granola Energy Balls with Matcha & Cocoa by Mitzy Tan

Energy Balls are the ideal snack - they are easy to make, stay fresh, taste amazing and pack tons of clean energy into a tiny ball! These raw energy balls are flourless, sugar-free and are a great way to use up the granola dust in our natural granola bags. Granola dust is packed with nutrition but often discarded, so we love this recipe by Mitzy Tan which takes the dust to a whole new level... enjoy!

Ingredients for 10 Energy Balls

  • Soft pitted dates (1/2 cup)
  • Cocoa powder (1/4 cup)
  • Walnuts (1/2 cup)
  • Husk & Honey Quinoa & Buckwheat Granola - including the dust! (2 tablespoons)
  • Desiccated Coconut (1/4 cup)
  • Almond milk (1 tablespoon)
  • Matcha powder
  • Chia seeds (1 teaspoon, optional)

Blend the pitted dates in a food processor and until they come together, forming a sticky ball. Then add walnuts, almond milk and optional chia seeds, blending again until well mixed. Add the desiccated coconut, cocoa and 2 tablespoons of Husk & Honey granola (and its dust from the bottom of the packet!), and blend again so that the ingredients are well mixed and again form a large sticky ball.

Remove from the processor and hand roll the sticky mix into 10 even-sized balls. Mix 2 spoons of desicated coconut with the matcha powder and coat the energy balls by rolling around in the mixture. Pop them in a tupperware and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.

(Tip: We have been loving these as a healthy post-swimming energy snack!)
