Lots of these foods are perfect to mix in energy balls. If you have an ailment that requires certain foods try to blend them into the power balls.

Energy balls recipes with dates
Regular visitors of this website know that I don’t cook, I don’t prepare food, Tom does that. He is the cook in the house, to my great delight, I want to add. But even I can prepare those energy balls without cutting myself in my fingers.
Mushroom energy balls
- 100 gr dates
- 50 gr almonds
- 50 gr walnuts
- 4 tsp “Magic Mushroom”
Soak the dates in warm water for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, chop the nuts into small pieces. Blend the dates, nuts, and powder until it is an even mix. Grab some mix and roll it into a ball between your palms.
There are 2 kinds of mushrooms in the “Magic Mushroom” mix, but it actually tasted like chocolate. Because of Cacao in it. 🙂 I love it. At times I also put some of this powder on a bit of coconut ice cream. Mmmm, delicious.
Forever energy balls
- 100 gr dates
- 30 gr Goji berries
- 100 gr almonds
- 2 tbsp Hazelnut paste
- 4 tsp “Forever Beautiful”
- Coconut grit
Let the dates and Goji berries soak in warm water for 10 minutes. Crush the nuts in the meantime. You can either chop them with a knife or use a hand chopper. Blend the dates and the berries, then add the nuts, hazelnut paste, and powder until it is an even mix.
Grab some mix and roll it into a ball between your palms. Roll them in coconut grit and store them in the fridge.
Many variations are possible with these recipes. Instead of dates, you can use any other type of dried fruit, such as dried apricots or raisins. You can replace the almond nuts with hazelnuts.
I use different powders from Your Super to have variety in taste. Sometimes I add coconut grit or cover the balls with it.
Immunity power balls
- 40 gr raisins
- 30 gr dried apricots
- 80 gr dates
- 100 gr mix of almonds, hazelnuts, and walnuts
- 2 tbsp Hazelnut paste
- 2 tsp “Super Green”
- 1 tbsp “Skinny Protein”
Soak the raisins, apricots, and dates in warm water for 10 minutes. Crush the nuts in the meantime. You can either chop them with a knife or use a hand chopper.
Blend the soaked ingredients first, then add the nuts, hazelnut paste, and powders until it is an even mix.
Spoon some mix out of the bowl and roll it between your palms. If your hands get too sticky, put them under a cold water tap to cool them before you start rolling.
My list of LDL lowering additions to the energy balls
- Barley grass
- Brewer’s yeast
- Carrot, raw
- Flax Seed
- Goji berries*
- Hemp seed
- Oat bran*
- Peanuts with skin**
- Pumpkin seeds
- Raw, dark chocolate 85%
- Sunflower seeds
- Wheat germ
** don’t use too much of this
The list on my fridge is longer, but these are suitable for use in the balls. Most items don’t decay that fast, but raw carrots turn brown quickly and shouldn’t be stored for too long.

I’m seriously addicted to power balls! I have tried them in a ton of combinations, my current faves being almond butter, dates, raisins and hemp seeds. One of these after my morning workout keeps me up and ready until I prep my breakfast. I have to try your combinations next, I’ve never added extra boosters to mine.
Your recipe sounds marvelous too, Molly, thanks so much for sharing that. It’s obvious I totally agree that power balls or energy balls are really great. They are so easy to make and last for some time so we have stock.
Thanks for taking the time to comment and stay healthy. 🙂
