Ingredients

Instructions

  • Add the quinoa and water in a saucepan, bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from heat and let it cool.
  • In a large bowl add all the ingredients. With a wooden spoon mix well to combine everything. You will end up with a sticky dough that holds together.
  • With your hand, form small balls about 1 inch of diameter.
  • Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Notes

Substitutes
  • ¾ natural peanut butter instead of almond butter
  • ¼ cup of honey instead of maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp of hemp seeds instead of flax seeds
 
Tips
  • To make easier to roll the balls, you can place the bowl with the mixture in fridge for 30 minutes.
  • You can keep the energy ball in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 1 week, or freeze for up to 3 months.
