Nut-Free Energy Balls are an easy-to-make snack. Packed with sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, and sweetened with Medjool dates, these energy bites are in a base of Sunflower Butter to keep this school safe and lunchbox approved!
In order listed, add all ingredients to the bowl of a food processor fitted with the chopping blade.
Pulse to combine all ingredients.
For a fine texture, pulse until most of the seeds and oats are pulverized.
For a chunkier texture, pulse until Medjool dates and SunButter are just combined and there are still some seed chunks.
Remove blade and use a spatula to scrape. Use a 1 Tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop dough.
Press in your hands and roll into a ball.
Place on a cookie sheet and refrigerate until hardeneded before transferring to a container with a lid. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks and the freezer for up to 4 weeks.
If you prefer a dry outer coating of the energy balls, you can roll them in some sunflower seed flour or oat flour before refrigerating.
You take some sunflower seeds OR oats and add to your blender (just enough to cover the blades). Process at a high speed for about 1 minute until pulverized into a fine powder. Transfer to a bowl and roll the balls into the flour.
