Power Balls

Power Balls

You guys know I love my snacks! I never go too far without my safety pile nearby. I love making power balls to help tide me over or give an extra boost out on a hike. Try these simple ones, they’re protein powder free and perfect for a little treat!

I’ve also added in a few extra add ins below to make these your own!


Additional add in which I love!
  • Goji berries
  • hemp seeds
  • dark chocolate nibs
  • chia seeds
  • cinnamon
  • chopped dates
  • toasted pumpkin seeds

Power Balls

  • 220g drained chickpeas – drained and rinsed (pat dry with some kitchen paper) I get a jar of chickpeas that is 340g BEFORE DRAINING and 220g after being drained
  • 200G almonds toasted (I toast mine for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned on the edges)
  • 4 tbsp raw honey or maple
  • Pinch of sea salt (big pinch)
  • handful cacao nibs/ or dark chocolate nibs
  1. In a food processor blend the chickpeas, salt and almonds until the dough it smooth (ish) – it will be a bit dry at this stage.
  2. Next, add in the honey and blend again. The dough will become less dry and a holding texture.
  3. Stir in the cacao nibs and taking sections using your hands roll into 12 balls (just a little smaller than a golf ball) – enjoy!
