I'd never made these trendy "energy balls" but had a long road trip coming up and decided to make some of these for healthy snacking. They really are so tasty, and like in the video I topped mine with salt which is awesome in contrast to the sweet dates.

I made these this morning and they are already gone. A very good snack if you want to be healthy but craving something sweet. I added some shredded coconut and a few dark chocolate chips to sweeten it up a little more. I also just froze them for one hour and they were fine. Too impatient!!

I'd never made these energy balls before and was blown away - after trying one I decided to top the rest with a pink Himalayan salt that gave it that sweet & salty punch that I always love. As is they're delicious - but with that salt kick? boy oh boy are these a treat!

Omg I really love these! I did add a little pink salt on the top like in the video and it really took them over the top. These are my go to snack now.

I’m just about to make these for the first time…so excited!!! I especially love how few clean ingredients there are and that I have them on hand! Made a banana walnut version and I love dates so I think this is a real winner of a recipe

I've made a few energy ball recipes and this is my favorite so far! I added in shredded coconut, hemp hearts and a scoop of my own pea protein (sun warrior). I also added a bit of almond milk to make sure the powder didn't overtake.

These were delicious, I had to modify because didn’t have dates. Added 1/2 candied orange, 1 tbs honey and 2tbs of PB. Can’t wait to try it with dates! Yummy
