Raisin Energy Balls with Sprouted Oats
Some adventures call for mess-free fuel you can eat on the go. These bite-sized Raisin Energy Balls with Sprouted Oats are perfectly packable and stuffed with a satisfying mix of plant-based protein, healthy fats, and complex carbs to keep you going.
Whether you are loading your family’s packs for an all-day adventure hike, training for an endurance race, or have a full day of appointments with no time to spare, these Raisin Energy Balls serve up clean, plant-based energy everyone will feel good eating.
What makes this recipe different than other energy balls? Where most use dates as their dried fruit base, and many call for plant-based protein powder or nut butter for protein, this recipe uses raisins, whole nuts, sprouted whole grain oats and flaxseed.
Both raisins and dates are excellent ingredients packed with nutrition—as are other plant-based ingredients common in energy ball and snack ball recipes. But if you are out of dates or just crave a subtle change from your usual recipe, our Raisin Energy Balls with Sprouted Oats recipe gives you another delicious whole food, plant-based option to add to your collection.
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup walnuts (or other nuts you like)
1/3 cup One Degree Organics Sprouted Rolled Oats (or Sprouted Quick Oats)
2 Tbsp ground flaxseed
1 Tbsp honey
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 – 1/2 cup shredded coconut (for rolling)
Place the nuts, oats, and flaxseed in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until finely ground.
Add the raisins, honey, vanilla extract, and salt. Pulse until a sticky ball forms.
Remove the energy ball dough from the food processor, then roll into bite-sized 1-inch balls.
Roll balls in shredded coconut to coat.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
To make this plant-based recipe vegan, substitute agave nectar or maple syrup in place of the honey.
