Let’s Talk Ingredients

Dried Blueberries

Unsweetened dried blueberries pack a healthy punch. According to an article written by Mala Srivastava at LiveStrong.com, blueberries:

  • Are High in Vitamin K – good for bone health
  • Aid in Combating Free Radicals – protecting our DNA
  • Improves Cardiovascular Health – reducing the risk of heart attack

This article also links to a study done on the antioxidant level differences in fresh, frozen, and dried blueberries. Their conclusion: no differences were detected. Wow!

Dried blueberries give these energy balls a chewiness that is quite delightful mixed with the crunch of the almonds.

Lemon Zest & Juice

Lemons are high in Vitamin C which helps immunity. They also help lower cholesterol. Lemons give these energy balls a little bit of tartness, that balances so well with the honey.

Don’t be afraid of the word ZEST! You just need the right tool. I use a microplane for zest, garlic, ginger, and Parmesan. It’s a tool I use every week.


Love it or leave it, coconut has fiber, iron, and zinc. It adds chewiness to these energy balls. However, coconut also has a lot of saturated fat (that’s why it’s so good)! So be mindful of shoveling handfuls in your mouth (guilty).

Sweetened or Unsweetened, both types of coconut work in this recipe. Of course, unsweetened coconut has less sugar, and is the healthier choice.

Not a Coconut Fan?

Omit! You can double up on almonds.

Almonds & Almond Butter

Almonds are rich in nutrients. According to Joe Leech, writer of 9 Evidence-Based Health Benefits of Almonds, almonds are:

  • High in Vitamin E
  • Loaded with Antioxidants
  • An aid to Weight Loss

Almond Butter, mixed with honey, is the binding that keep these balls together. Peanut butter works in this recipe as well.


Honey is nature’s sweetener. To get the full health benefits of honey, go for raw honey. It’s less processed, therefore, contains more nutrients.


Oats are the healthy binding of these balls. They provide fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Quick oats are the way to go in this energy ball recipe.

Chia Seeds

These tiny seeds pack a healthy punch. They are truly a super food. According to this article, written for Healthline.com, by Kris Gunnars and Lizzie Streit:

“The antioxidants, minerals, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids in chia seeds may promote heart health, support strong bones, and improve blood sugar management.”


Chia seeds give these Lemon Blueberry Energy Balls a little pop.

Ground Flax Seeds

Flax seeds really help things get going, if you know what I mean. They aid in digestion, and give a nice nutty flavor.

Roll the Balls

Use a small cookie scoop or spoon for this. Slightly smaller than a golf ball is a good size.

Place your energy balls in an air tight container. Store in refrigeration for up to 5 days. These also freeze well. Make a full batch and freeze half.
