Date Goji Energy Balls

After last weeks kinda long, kinda deep post, I wanted to make sure this week was quick and fun! So here is a recipe I threw together before we headed up to Northern Arizona on a camping trip and trail run!

This was an AWESOME race. Aravaipa Running knows how to put on a great event. Definitely check it out. We did the 13k and thoroughly enjoyed the course.

Mile 3ish of 8ish out on the course.

My favorite part about this recipe is that NO baking is required; which is perfect for those hot summer months. They are also good to curb your sweet tooth, AND a good boost to eat before or after a workout.

Date Goji Energy Balls

Ingredients

16 dates

30 almonds

1 TBSP chia seeds

2 tsp. raw cacao powder

1 tsp. raw maca powder

1 TBSP dried goji berries

2 drops vanilla essence (optional, and not to be confused with vanilla extract)

ROLLING POWDER

1 tsp. raw maca powder

1 tsp. raw cacao powder

2 tsp. maple sugar

Instructions

    In the order listed above, put the ingredients in a food processor.

    Blend until a ball forms, and it all sticks together.

    Use a spoon to scoop out the desired amount of dough, and roll into bite-sized balls. I made mine about 3/4" around.

    To prevent sticking, roll them in the powder mixture. I just mixed it up in a small ramekin, and rolled them around until coated, then rolled in my hands again to get off the excess and press the powder into the ball.

And as I mentioned last week, I’m really big into Snapchat these days. As I was making this recipe, I was Snapping it. haha Which is why the photos have the text ON them. 🙂

Do you like recipes like this where you don’t have to use the oven or stove in the summer? Or do you still bake and cook as usual, even when it’s hot outside?

Next week, I will be posting a recipe and How-To video on making your own homemade sourdough loaf, using a sourdough starter! If you don’t know what a sourdough starter is, this is a GREAT video that explains it all.
