Vegan Protein Energy Balls

This week my cousin Alex has a dance workshop downtown Vancouver and they live in Coquitlam. So its been a lot of driving back and forth, so Thursday and Friday night I'm having my cousin over for some girl time. I felt like such a mom yesterday. I picked her up at dance class. We went and got groceries, then I made her lunch for the next day and prepared us dinner. LOLballs.

I thought it might be nice to have my balls in her lunch. Good fuel for her 4 hours of dance that she has to do. Plus these are SO easy to make as you DON'T have to bake them! Bonus! My kinda baking. :)

Vegan Protein Energy Balls
1 1/2 cups peanut butter, natural
2 cups rolled oats
1/3 cup agave nectar
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup hemp seed

Grind half the rolled oats in a food processor for 30 seconds. Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl and stir until well combined. Chill dough in the refridgerator for 30 minutes before forming into balls. You can store them in the freezer. They are really good straight from the freezer. :)

I think I made 20 with this recipe. But it really depends on how big you like your balls. I have made a couple extra ball recipes. Check them out here and here and here.  All different variations, some with chocolate and walnuts, some with VEGA powder. All easy, all delish and all good for you BUT all very addictive.


I gotta go pick the kid up at class. LOL





  1. Love how simple this !! Can't wait to give it a try :)

    1. You MUST!!! They are so delish. I love that they're no bake but once you try them, you will be addicted. For that, I'm sorry. LOL

  2. It is very easy for a vegan diet to meet the recommendations for protein, as long as calorie intake is adequate. Strict protein combining is not necessary; it is more important to eat a varied diet throughout the day.

    1. I agree with you completely!! I don't find it hard to get enough protein at all. :)
