Additional Information:

This is the energy balls where I have included all the nuts and seeds in the ingredients to include all the different nutrition, since all nuts and seeds have different nutrition strength. For example, just eating 1 Brazil nut a day covers more than 70% of the RDI for selenium, while sunflower seeds contain the highest amount of Vitamin E compared to other nuts and seeds.

Don't worry if it looks like there isn't sufficient wet ingredients in the beginning. Once you start massage the dough, it gives out more oil, and it will form into sticky dough. If not, adjust with more nut butter or just a dab of water.

 Add 1 teaspoon of wheat germ

 Add 1 teaspoon of wheat bran

 Add 1 teaspoon of hemp seeds

  Add 1 teaspoon of  ground flax seeds

  Add 1 teaspoon of chia seeds

 Add 1 teaspoon of carob powder 

 Add 1 pinch of vanilla powder

Add 1 pinch of cinnamon powder

 Add 1 teaspoon of sunflower seeds

 Add 1 teaspoon of pumpkin seeds

 Add 1 teaspoon of goji berries

 Add 1 teaspoon of pine nuts

 Add 1 teaspoon of skimmed milk powder (optional)

 Add 1 teaspoon of rolled oats

Add the nuts - 1 cashew nut, 1 Brazil nut, 1 walnut and 1 pecan, 1 almond. 
Include separately the wet ingredients - 1 dried date pitted and 1 tablespoon of homemade Nutella

Chop the nuts and seeds (I use my nut chopper or you can chop with a knife)

Mix all the dry ingredients together

The dry ingredients will fill approx. 1/3 cup. Add 1 tablespoon homemade Nutella and 1 dried date pitted

Mix in the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients into a dough

 Form into balls.


Sprinkle with cinnamon powder, carob powder or wheat germ.
It is best to place in the fridge for 30 minutes and you are ready to enjoy :-)
