These energy balls are a simple and delicious snack that are perfect for busy days when you need a quick boost of energy.


  • 1/2 cup dried apricots (95g)
  • 1/4 cup cashews (38g)
  • 3 tablespoons old fashioned oats (24g)
  • 3/4 cup shredded coconut (37g)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds (10g)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoons maple syrup (25g)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut milk (16g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanila extract


  1. In a food processor add the dried apricots and blend into a rough paste.
  2. Next add cashews and oats to the food processor and blend until a crumble consistency.
  3. Add the shredded coconut, chia seeds, and pinch of salt to the food processor and blend until a rough dry mixture has formed.
  4. Next add the maple syrup, coconut milk, and vanilla extract. Blend everything together for 1-2 minutes until a sticky dough has formed.
  5. Roll the dough into small bite size balls and chill in the freezer or fridge for 20-30 minutes.
  6. Store them in a plastic container and take along for your next adventure.


You can dip the finished balls in melted carob for an extra touch.  I add a little melted coconut oil to melted carob to make it a dipping consistency.  Put them on a piece of parchment paper and chill in the freeze until the carob sets.  Store in a travel container.
