High Protein Energy Balls

High Protein Energy Balls

Choc-full of protein and nutrients, these make a sweet, high-energy snack.


  • 1/2 cup ground unhulled sesame seeds
  • 1 cup ground sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup ground chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup hulled hemp seeds
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seeds
  • 1 cup ground cashews
  • ½ – 1 cup* carob or cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup spirulina or chlorella
  • ½ cup almond butter and/or cashew butter
  • 1 cup raisins, chopped
  • 1 – 1 ½* cups liquid sweetener: honey, brown rice syrup, (warming them to a less viscous state can help the mixing process), or agave
  • 4 cups puffed millet and/or quinoa

Make It

  1. Put dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix with a strong spoon and a table knife once it gets really thick.
  2. Add raisins, nut butter, liquid sweetener, and puffed cereal, mixing as you go.
  3. Add extra powder or liquid sweetener as required to make a firm, non-sticky consistency.
  4. Rolling these into balls can be a little time consuming – I suggest setting up some entertainment or use as an opportunity for meditation-in-action. Keep a damp cloth for cleaning hands as needed for interruptions.
  5. Keep cool in a closed container.
  6. Makes at least 40 large balls.
