medjool dates

Energy Booster Balls


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.
