Additional Information:

This is a slight tweet to the All Ingredients Energy Balls. I have replaced the Nutella with hazelnut butter and carob powder, which does not contain caffeine and is a perfect cacao substitute, and more suitable for kids. It is naturally sweet and gives it a more chocolaty and caramel like flavor that is all natural.

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.

When I have the time, I form it into different shapes such as flower, heart-shape, star, etc. You can also let your kids play with it as an kind of edible play dough.

Sometimes I don't add goji berries, if I feel that my kids have consumed too much of them.

 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 hazelnut butter flavored with carob powder

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 a 1/3 cup. Add 1 tablespoon of homemade or store-bought hazelnut butter and 1 dried date pitted.

Mix in the wet ingredients and wet ingredients together 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 :-)
