Easy recipe for vegan date energy balls without added sugar. You can make the date confection super quick and they give you power every day!
Hello there. Today I have something special for you: Date Energy Balls.
They are just perfect: super delicious and healthy, vegan, low fat, nutritious and without added sugar. They're like healthy chocolate pralines - sounds like a contradiction in terms at first, but they're actually unspectacular. The date-almond-confection consists of just a few ingredients and you can make it super quick.
Taste and Occasion
I made these date energy balls for the first time a few years ago. Back then I came across incredibly great and incredibly expensive date confectionery in the supermarket. So even before the current hype around energy balls.
Energy Balls are almost always vegan and raw confectionery. There are energy balls with oatmeal and with coconut, some with apricots or just this one with dates and almonds.
The healthy date pralines without sugar (which shouldn't be called pralines, because there is no chocolate in them), are incredibly delicious!
They taste like raw brownie batter. You'll love it. Yet the Energy Balls are primarily made with dates – fresh, juicy and fruity dates. They are naturally very sweet, which is why the low-fat chocolates are, of course, despite all the health attributes, still a treat that you should actually 😉 not eat in masses.
How To Make The Date Energy Balls
Get ready for probably the easiest recipe ever: First of all, place all ingredients in a good food processor (or similar) and blend them until you get a homogeneous mixture that is no longer lumpy.
Incredibly delicious classic: this fluffy bee sting made from yeast dough is filled with a custard cream, but it also tastes great without the filling as an especially quick alternative.
Now, form small balls with your hands and roll in cocoa nibs, sesame seeds or coconut as you like. Last step: Store the confection in the refrigerator and enjoy your powerful snack!
If you want to make the vegan date confection yourself, there's really only one prerequisite: you need a powerful food processor, as you do for all these raw food sweets. It doesn't hurt to have one for Protein Balls and Co., too.
