Healthy Energy Habits

Getting healthy and staying healthy is often just a matter of changing health habits.

Geez, look how clean our hands, shopping carts and doorknobs have become since 2020, so why not our inner body too!

I have often wondered, during the pandemic year, as we all became mega-germaphobes, if we would ever revert back to the careless way we once did things. Somehow, I think not.

Energy Balls Are A Healthy Habit

If we can be forced to change simple things we do each day, why not dig a little deeper and add a few new habits in our daily food consumption?

I gave a lot of thought as to which foods I wanted to share with you here and why.

I think you will not only find them helpful for your immune support, but I believe you will actually look forward to eating them.

They are almost too scrumptious to be healthy!

Energy Balls To-Go For The Health Of It

Busy lives often require ‘think ahead’ foods to-go with that busy life.

Making these energy bites in advance means there is always something healthy to put in your purse, briefcase or lunch bag.

I never leave home without a zip bag of a few energy bites in my purse.

In this way I am never tempted to grab a fast, unhealthy snack while out and about, when that hunger pang hits.

Since these are power packed with only healthy ingredients, I know I am giving my body the best possible energy boost when I need it most.

Having developed a mindset for healthy foods (desserts included), vs just foods, you will find this theme throughout many of my recipes, a mindset that is derived from Mediterranean cooking.

How To Make No Bake Energy Balls

A food processor or blender is needed to make these.

You could pound the heck out of the ingredients with a mortar and pestle, but electronics make it fast, easy and a one time purchase of a food processor has become affordable.

The ingredients are placed into the processor and whirled until everything is ground and the mix begins to form a ball inside the processor. 

Easy tablespoon sizes are scooped out and rolled into small balls and placed in the fridge, to firm up, until ready to grab and go.

If adding ingredients such as carrots or apples, simply peel and chop into small pieces before putting in the processor.

The trick to creating a sticky paste-like texture for the energy balls, is the combination of dried fruits and nuts, pulsed until they form a paste.

Spices, seeds, fresh fruits can be added to layer the dimension of flavors. 

Equipment Needed

  • Food processor – For a small and affordable option I have purchased this one for my kids apartment life, however for myself, I like this larger more multipurpose one.
  • Knife
  • Cutting board
  • Measuring spoon
  • Measuring cup
  • Closed container for storage

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 12 servings


  • Food processor


Black Energy Bites

  • 1 cup Prunes pitted
  • 1 cup Pecans
  • 1 tbsp Molasses
  • 1/4 tsp Clove powder
  • 1/2 ts[ Mace
  • 1 tbsp Freeze-Dried Raspberries crushed separate to roll balls in

Green Energy Bites

  • 1 cup Golden raisins
  • 1 cup Oats
  • 2 tbsp Hemp seeds
  • 1 tsp Matcha green tea powder
  • 2 tsp Agave

Brown Energy Bites

  • 1 cup Dates pitted
  • 1 cup Walnuts
  • 2 tbsp Raw cacao

Orange Energy Bites

  • 1 cup Apricots
  • 1 cup Almonds
  • 1 Large Carrot peeled and rough chopped
  • 1 tbsp Fresh ginger peeled and rough chopped
  • 1 tsp Fresh Orange zest
  • 1 tbsp Honey


  • These are 4 different recipes, so depending on which you are making, each is prepared the same.
    Ingredients goes into a food processor. Processed until everything purees and comes together into a ball.
  • Tablespoon size scoops rolled into small balls and placed on a tray, chilled in the fridge until ready to serve.
  • If freeze-dried raspberries (which also come in blueberry and strawberry), are being used to both garnish and flavor, crush to a powder and sprinkle on after balls are formed.


  • Some of the nuts will produce quite a lot of natural oil when being pureed. 1 tablespoon of oat flour can be added to absorb some of the oil or simply place on a paper towel when balls are formed to absorb, or leave as is. I like the natural oil. 
  • Storage: All of the energy bites that do not have perishable ingredients (such as the orange bites), will keep in the fridge for about 1 month.
