WHAT ARE NO-BAKE BERRY ENERGY BALLS?

Energy balls are a combination of nutritious and healthy ingredients rolled together into a ball and generally eaten raw! Depending on the ingredients, they are generally high in good carbs, healthy fats, and protein.

CAN YOU MAKE NO-BAKE BERRY ENERGY BALLS IN A BLENDER OR NUTRIBULLET?

You can make this recipe with a high-speed blender (this is the one I use) or a Nutribullet if you don’t feel like mixing the ingredients by hand, but a blender is not essential for this recipe. 

Nutribullets used to be my absolute favorite for an efficient, fast and affordable blender that you can take everywhere with you! This is the one I recommend, you can use it to mix the Berry Energy Balls ingredients, or just to make the oat flour yourself!

HOW MANY CALORIES ARE IN ENERGY BALLS?

Energy balls contain about 90 to 300 calories depending on what they are made of. These No-Bake Berry Energy only have 96 calories per ball, thanks to the stevia sugar used as a delicious 0 calorie sweetener. (See Nutrition Facts at the end of the page.)

ARE NO-BAKE BERRY ENERGY BALLS KETO-FRIENDLY?

Energy balls are generally more high carb than high fat and are therefore not keto-friendly. Visit this link for a keto-friendly energy balls recipe.

CAN YOU MAKE ENERGY BALLS WITH OATS?

Absolutely! Below are listed the ingredients of these No-Bake Berry Energy Balls and oat flour is one of them!

ARE ENERGY BALLS GLUTEN-FREE?

This Energy Ball recipe contains only 4 ingredients and none of them are gluten-free!

-Fresh or frozen berries

Nut butter

Stevia sugar

– And oat flour! (make sure to use gluten-free oat flour if you are gluten intolerant.)

CAN YOU BAKE ENERGY BALLS?

You sure can but it is usually unnecessary if you use only plant-based ingredients that do not require baking such as the ones in this recipe.

ARE ENERGY BALLS ACTUALLY HEALTHY?

Generally yes, energy balls are good for you but this depends on the ingredients. 

This recipe is made of only 4 plant-based and nutritious ingredients that contain high levels of fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and has, therefore, multiple health benefits.

WHEN TO EAT ENERGY BALLS?

I would consider energy balls a snack to easily reach whenever you get hungry, but who am I to tell you when to eat your No-Bake Berry Energy Balls?? 

I enjoy them as a late-night snack or between breakfast and lunch, but it is really up to you to decide when to savour your energy balls!

HOW TO MAKE PINK ENERGY BALLS?

Scroll down for the recipe and you will find out! But seriously, there is nothing easier than making pink energy balls. All you need is some frozen or fresh mixed berries and pink your energy balls will be!

HOW TO MAKE ENERGY BALLS STICK TOGETHER? 

Nut butter! In this recipe, I use cashew butter but any other nut butter will perfectly do the job. And the secret for energy balls to stick together is not to make the dough to liquid, which explains why we won’t be using any liquid ingredient in this recipe!

WHAT TO EAT WITH NO-BAKE BERRY ENERGY BALLS?

Eat your energy balls with warm tea, on top of porridge, with water or simply by itself, which is what I do because these No-Bake Berry Energy Balls are way too good to be patient enough to make something else to go with them!

HOW TO STORE ENERGY BALLS?

It is best to store these Energy Balls in a closed container or a covered plate so the balls don’t dry up. You can store them in a fridge for up to one week, but trust me they won’t last any longer than two days once you taste them!

CAN YOU FREEZE ENERGY BALLS?

You can, if you decide to make a big batch of them and keep them in the freezer (use closed containers). However, if you just follow this recipe and make 12 energy balls, I would recommend storing them in the fridge as they naturally taste much better fresh than unfrosted!

HOW TO MAKE PROTEIN ENERGY BALLS?

These No-Bake Berry Energy Balls contain over 3 grams of protein per ball which to me is sufficient and perfect for a snack. (See Nutrition Facts at the end of the page.)

If you want even more proteins in your energy balls, feel free to replace 10 grams of oats by 10 grams of protein powder in this recipe (I recommend vegan protein powder). However, keep in mind this will slightly affect the final flavor.

NO BAKE BERRY ENERGY BALLS FOR WEIGHT LOSS

These Berry Energy Balls contain only 96 calories per ball due to the use of stevia sugar (0 calorie) as a sweetener. (See Nutrition Facts at the end of the page.)

Now don’t get me wrong, eating energy balls doesn’t mean you will miraculously lose weight, it just means you can enjoy a delicious healthy snack that is filling and low in calories!

HOW TO MAKE NO-BAKE BERRY ENERGY BALLS?

For this recipe, you will need 30 minutes of your time, a fork, your hands, a mixing bowl, and just a few simple ingredients! 

To make energy balls with nut butter, we will mix the nut butter with the mashed berries so the final mixture is perfectly blended without any nut butter chunks! I use cashew butter for this recipe but you can use any nut butter you have at home (peanut, almond…).

NO-BAKE BERRY ENERGY BALLS WITH COCONUT

In this recipe, I give you the option of rolling your No-Bake Berry Energy Balls in desiccated coconut. It will make your energy balls 10 times prettier if it matters to you, and it will give them a subtle coconut taste that I personally love!

**Use a blender or food processor to turn oats into oat flour. You can also use store-bought oat flour such as this gluten-free oat flour.
***You can substitute stevia sugar with any other sugar, but keep in mind it will affect the given calories and macros breakdown.
