I love making power balls! There’s something so pleasing about them… that and they have SO much potential. Plus, there’s an infinite number of flavor combinations you can try. Once you’ve made a few at home, you’ll start to see how the ratios and flavor pairings work.
Power balls have so many great perks:
• Easy snacks you can make with/for kids
• Easy to pack with nutrition (extra omega and other super-foods)
• Great for lunches
• Can fridge them for several weeks (or freeze)
• Refined sugar free (usually)
I also want to add this: if you’re dealing with multiple food allergies and restrictions, power balls can help you with that too. There’s a good chance that you’ll be able to have a lot of the base ingredients for power balls, meaning you can put your own safe spin on them. This can help prevent boredom with your food, and of course, keep you fueled.

Start by pitting your dates. If they’re very dry, soak them in warm water overnight, or for a few hours before starting. Once pitted, combine the dates and all of the other ingredients into your food processor. Mix until everything is well combined.
I like to use a small cookie dough scooper (2 tsp) to portion out power balls. You can store these (covered) in the fridge, or freeze and use as needed.
