Date Energy Balls

Date Energy BallsThese Date Energy Balls are a tasty pre-workout energy snack with both protein and healthy carbs to fuel your exercise routine. And they only take a few minutes to make with your food processor.

We used dried blueberries that we had on hand from Sam’s Club, but you can use your favorite type of dried fruit. Just make sure it’s dried, not fresh. The pitted dates provide all the moisture this recipe needs and the dried fruit provides the stickiness that binds it together.

These Date Energy Balls pack 153 calories per ball, so don’t sit on the sofa and pop them in your mouth like candy. They’re meant as a pre-workout snack. Eat them about 20 minutes before your workout to get the maximum energy boost.
