Vegan Super Seed Energy Balls – Nut Free

Hi guys!

Lately I’ve been loving recipes that are super quick to whip up, especially with this mountain of uni reading that has decided to grow..

To help keep my mind focused and energy levels up, I love having one of these super energy balls, that are little balls of delicious health! They are yummy alongside some strawberries (actual ones, not just my nail polish ;)!) or with a smoothie for a powerful nutrition hit!

They are filled with some amazing super foods, all that are easy to get your paws on too – sunflower seeds, flaxseed, chia seeds, raw cacao, cinnamon, dates, a dash of vanilla and coconut oil!

  1. I made these for my daughters preschool class (2-3 year olds), which is a vegan and nut-free environment. I served with a variety of cut fruit and they gobbled down every last bite. Then my daughter asked to make more to have at home too.
