Power Balls

Prep Time: 15 minutes 

Cook Time: 0-6 minutes 

Servings: Approx. 24


  • 1 cup honey

  • 1 cup nut butter (peanut, cashew, almond, sunflower seed, etc.)

  • 1 cup powdered milk or protein powder

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour or cocoa powder

  • 1 cup brown rice flour

  • 1 cup chopped raisins or dried cranberries

  • 1/2 cup wheat germ or flax meal

  • 1/2 cup oat flour (rolled oats can be ground in a blender or food processor)

  • 1/2 cup almond, hazelnut or pumpkin seed meal (nuts and/or seeds can be ground in a blender or food processor)

  • Additional nut meal for rolling on the outside of the balls, optional


Combine all ingredients in a standing mixer or with a wooden spoon in a large bowl. Form into round balls and roll in more nut meal if desired. These can be served and eaten as is, or baked in a preheated 325-degree oven for five to six minutes to firm them up. These snacks will keep up to a week at room temperature. Refrigerate or freeze for long-term storage.

Additions and variations to Power Balls are endless. The key is keeping them the right consistency to form into balls. However, this dough can be spread thinly in a pan, scored before baking and baked at 325-degree for an energy bar. The dough can also be formed into a log, kept in the refrigerator, sliced and served as a cookie (raw or baked).
