Energy Booster Balls

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


If you like pecan pie, you are going to enjoy these high energy snacks. Pecans are naturally high in protein and vitamin E. Medjool dates are a natural energy booster and a rich source of potassium.  I love taking these along on long bike rides.  They’re so much tastier and healthier than gels or commercially prepared protein bars.  In the summer, I freeze them so they stay nice and chilled while out on the road.

2 cups pecans
16 Medjool dates, pitted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse to combine well. Roll into 1 inch balls and chill. Makes about 24 balls.
