Keto Superfood Energy Balls

As we tend to be more cautious about health nowadays, we have been eating the healthiest than ever lately.  When I eat ultra healthy things, I always felt a bit bored inside.  That is normal for most of people.  We all get excited about eating fatty, sugary, so called satisfying foods.  But it's been a while since I stuck with rather healthy way of eating, my attitude towards healthy food has chanced.  I honestly am excited about eating gluten free, sugar free sweets now. I enjoy eating mostly fruits and vegetables. They can be so good if you learn how to make delicious things without using animal protein, fat, sugar and dairy.  These super energy balls are one of those delicious things.  

I never liked dried fruits as a child. I'm still not too crazy about them.  I'd rather eat fresh fruits.  But dried fruits are great if you eat them broken down, mixed with other things and made into something beyond just dried fruits like these little balls.  

For this time around, I used Medjool dates, figs, goji berries, blueberries, toasted coconuts, coconut oil, cashew nuts, chia seeds, cinnamon and matcha powder.  Yes they are all super foods containing nutritions like magnesium, potassium, minerals, vitamins, omega, antioxidants, calcium and more.  Medjool dates and figs are sweet like caramel and set the nice flavor.  You can probably guess how delicious they are already.  I love coconuts especially toasted coconuts.  So much flavor it gives.  

For this recipe, I used a few more ingredients than I do sometimes and you don't need all these things to make a delicious energy balls or bars. I usually use whatever I have around the house and whatever I feel like using, just don't add any dairy, sugar or gluten, or anything artificial obviously.

Another good thing about this is that it is non baked.  Easy and no mess.  Just blend them all in the food processor and make shapes in a plastic bag and done.  If you don't want to spend time making it into balls, then you can spread them in a container, chill it and cut them into squares as I did in this post.  You just have to make sure to add coconut oil as it acts as joint agent.  You can also use cashew butter instead of nuts.

I made a whole batch but they tend to disappear quickly as the kids even love them.  They won't eat each ingredient necessarily but combined, they love them.  They prefer these to packaged granola bars.

Ever since the pandemics started and I have gone through some stomach issues, I have been focused on eating better for over all mental and physical health.  I have to say it is working.  I will probably never become a vegetarian or vegan, but I am genuinely looking forward to cooking and eating this way for the rest of my life.
