Easy Vegan Energy Balls with a Serious Energy Boost!

Obviously, these easy vegan energy balls aren’t like an ‘energy drink.’ There’s no caffeine or questionable additives that produce their energizing effect. So, where does the energy come from? The most basic source: real, whole foods!

Of course, all food provides us with energy of some sort. But, I’ve designed these easy vegan energy balls to have a balance of nutrients for high-quality long-lasting energy. And, maximum deliciousness!

The high natural sugar content in dates provides more immediate energy. Plus, a crave-able natural sweetness with NO added sugars. Then, the oats offer complex carbs that break down slowly in the body. Which, unlike simple carbs, provide energy that lasts over a longer time period.

Finally, the sunflower and sesame seeds add a dose of nutritious fuel-filled fats. ALL of us need some dietary fat—even more so if you’re on a low carb lifestyle. But, those fats also make these easy vegan energy balls more satisfying, so they actually fill you up!
