Banana Bread Energy Balls

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 110 g cashew nuts
  • 150 g rolled oats (use gluten-free certified oats if required)
  • 2 medium ripe bananas
  • 50 g ground almonds
  • 3 tbsp dark chocolate chips
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp unsweetened finely shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds


Place the cashew nuts into a food processer and pulse until it turns to a grainy paste. This paste will help the mixture stick together.
Add the rolled oats and pulse again for a few seconds to break up the oats a little bit. Add the bananas, and pulse again until fully combined.
Stir in the ground almonds, then add the chocolate chips, vanilla extract, cinnamon and salt. Stir again until combined. You should have a thick, sticky paste, that can be rolled into balls. If the mixture is too loose, stir in an extra spoonful of oats.
Place the shredded coconut and chia seeds into a shallow bowl and mix together. The chia seeds will sink to the bottom, that’s fine.
Scoop a heaped teaspoon of the mixture into your hand, then roll into a ball. Roll around in the coconut mixture, pressing down a little so the coconut sticks and a few chia seeds also stick. Place on a plate or tray.
Repeat until all of the mixture is used. Eat immediately, or store in an air-tight container at room temperature. The banana balls should keep for 2-3 days.
