Holy Crap Energy Balls

Holy Crap Energy Balls

Holy Crap cereal Energy Balls are a great post work-out snack or a mid-afternoon snack.

Corin loves dates, and she uses them in both sweet and savoury dishes. Early in her career as a flight attendant, dates were her “fast food”—quick snacks that fit in her carry-on and didn’t need refrigeration.

These energy balls made with dates are fun and easy for kids to make, and they’re a great alternative to packaged granola bars, which are usually packed with hidden oils and sugars. Dates are quite high in fruit sugar, so these are a treat, but they are also a good source of fibre and they have 50 per cent more potassium by weight than bananas. All that potassium is good for your heart and your digestion.

Makes: 8 energy balls

Ingredients:
5 oz. (140 mL) medjool dates, pitted (about 9 dates)
1/4 cup (60 ml) raw almonds
1 Tbsp (15 mL) raw unsalted sunflower seeds
2 Tbsp (28 g) Holy Crap cereal
2 Tbsp (30 mL) dried cranberries
1 1/2 tsp (7.5 mL) raw unsalted pumpkin seeds
1/2 tsp (3mL) cinnamon
pinch of salt


Directions:
In a food processor, pulse the dates and almonds until they are mostly ground up. Some larger pieces are okay.
Transfer the date mixture to a medium bowl, add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Pinch off a tablespoon-sized amount of dough and roll it between your palms to form a ball (or flatten it like a cookie if you prefer). Repeat with the remaining dough. Arrange the energy balls on a plate and refrigerate until needed. They will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for several days.
