Energy Balls

This month we have a recipe for gluten-free energy balls. Due to the mounting research on the harmful effects of gluten and especially wheat on the human body, we try to source out yummy recipes for wholesome snacks that will be more readily digested and help you sustain energy longer. This is an easy, delicious energy boosting ball that uses all raw ingredients. They contain protein rich hemp hearts, the shelled seeds of the hemp plant. Hemp hearts are incredibly high in essential fatty acids such as linoleic acid, and omega 3 and 6. They also have anti-inflammatory properties, and have been found to reduce the symptoms of eczema.

Almond Hemp Energy Balls

Makes about 20 balls (2 Tablespoon size)


  • 2 cups almond butter (or other nut butter of your choice)
  • 1 ½ cup toasted oats or granola cereal
  • ¼ cup ground flaxseeds (optional)
  • 1/2 to 1 full cup honey or agave nectar depending on how sweet you like them
  • ½ cup of nuts of any sort
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips or dried cranberries (optional)
  • hemp hearts- to roll the balls in

Mix toasted oats with other ingredients. Form balls using approximately 1 ½ – 2 tablespoons of the mixture or can form whatever size you want! Roll the balls in the hemp hearts — Refrigerate at least 1 hour before eating (this makes the balls stick together more).
