It’s time update your snack game kids! I know, I know it’s my THIRD blog post about Energy Balls this week. What can I say? I like them balls! These are ones I created for all you parents out there. I know it’s tough to get your kiddos to east healthy (ier, ish) snacks, so these ones look fun and colourful for your picky eaters.



The base of any good No-Bake Energy Ball is oatmeal, nut butter, and dates and/or agave. You can mix in literally anything else you want suit your tastebuds’ style, or whatever you’ve got laying around. I always have SOMETHING on hand to make these guys. Which makes a quick make ahead breakfast easy-peasy. Plus they’re kid approved. I know, I know, you’re like “…but Candice YOU don’t have kids!” and you would be right- but I know kids and as with all my recipes, I had them taste tested- this time by KIDS! These are also fun for adults, and can be made in advanced. They store well, freeze well and travel well. Any questions? Try my Chocolate Blueberry flavoured ones or these Chocolate Chip Walnut ones as well!

    What’s the nutritional facts. How many calories and carbs per ball??

  • I really want to try these! I hate to ask about substitutions, but my kids’ ‘ school has a no nut policy. It’s been difficult to find ball recipes that can go to school. What, if anything, could replace the nuts?

    • Have you tried “Wow! Butter” ? It tastes like peanut butter but is made from roasted sunflower seeds.

      • Thanks! I have tried wowbutter sandwiches (wb&j) but my kids didn’t agree that it tastes like pb. They really love pb.
        Maybe it will be more palatable in a ball, and rolled in sprinkles! I will give it a try. Atleast I may be able to use up the large jar of wow butter on the fridge ☺

  • Hi! Do you have to store them in your fridge for up to a week or they can be at room temp? I just made a batch of them and my mom and I are using this an another recipe for energy bites as some of our breakfast and snacks for our vegan trial week 🙂

    • Def store them in the fridge. 🙂

        All I have is dry roasted and salted macadamia nuts. Will that work? Ugg I’m so ready to make these! If not, where does one find raw Mac nuts?

    • Sunflower seed butter is really good too, and it’s not a nut or legume.

  • Who needs birthday cake when you can make bites that are much more fun-sized? And I would totally eat these for breakfast! SO yummy!

  • Susie Sunshine says:

    Oooooooh……. Now this is one the kids will definitely LOVE! I’ll have to find a source for organic or naturally-colored sprinkles. Thanks for the recipes for all the energy balls! I love them, too! ❤

    • M Paige O says:

      Do these have to be made with raw macadamia nuts? I have a bag of roasted & salted ones because I didn’t realize you could buy raw. And didn’t read the recipe close enough before buying what I thought I needed.

      • EdgyVeg says:

        Roasted should be fine. It may change the flavour a little bit but I’m sure you’ll still enjoy them!
