I prepared energy balls again. You have to try this flavor! Anyone who tried these, was excited about them. My colleagues placed an order with me to bring them to work on a weekly basis.

These energy balls are super chocolaty and rich in flavor. They are made basically from the same ingredients, like my chocolate orange energy balls, which are dates and cashews. I added some peanut butter, cocoa powder, chia seeds and a bit of maca powder.

To prepare the energy balls mix the ingredients in a food processor until a sticky dough forms. Take a tablespoon full and roll it in a ball shape.

Chia seeds are literally in every mouth now. These little spots bring some extra crunch to your energy balls and also good nutrients such as calcium, potassium and zinc. They also contain, just like flax seeds, a lot of omega 3 fatty acids. But you don’t have to crush chia seeds to make your body absorb the good nutrients. When you use flax seeds you always should.

Maca is a plant, cultivated in the Peruvian Andean. For maca powder the root is dried and then ground. It contains lots of essential amino acids, iron and calcium. Also it is supposed to strengthen your immune system and enhance physical and psychological capacity. If you don’t want to use maca, just omit it.

You see this? These energy balls have a lot of energy 😉

    Die sind einfach köstlich, ich mache sie ständig, variiere aber die Zutaten immer mal wieder ein wenig. Schafft das eigentlich dein Omniblend oder welche Maschine nutzt du dafür?Wenn ich das alles ohne einweichen und kleinschneiden in meinen Mixer hau, muss ich sagen kommt der doch stark an seine Grenzen und ich muss immer mal wieder mit nem Teigschaber nachhelfen

      Hi Saskia,
      ich mache die Energiebällchen in meiner Küchenmaschine. Das macht sie ziemlich gut ?
      Ich schneide nichts klein, sondern gebe die Zutaten einfach alle hinein.
      Liebe Grüße
