Raw Walnut Cranberry Energy Ball ~ No Bake again 🙂
Hi all, we were on holiday to Paris for the last few days, we have a wonderful time and wonderful weather over there.
Suppose this recipe was posted before I head off to France, but I forgot it during the rush and I couldn’t post in the hotel because the network over there was terrible, sorry!
And this was what I prepared for the journey to Paris, the recipe was full of protein and without any sugar, but full of nutrients for my long hours coach journey. Sorry about the late! :p
I still get crazy about the ‘no bake’ idea in my kitchen, thanks all that gave me this great method.
And the great advantage of this recipe are: we can get the best nutrients from the raw food; lots of way to create your individual like – just use your creative intelligence. Meanwhile we can save our gas or electric bill ~ that’s a main things for economic crisis. So, why not get crazy!
Invite your kids to get involve the rolling and coating, I think they love to join in this activity during the summer holiday. Have fun with them.
These healthy little balls are great as a snack for your kid’s lunch box or adult’s bento box. They are no-bake, low carb, no-sugar, gluten-free and vegan.
The next few days, we will have a trip to Paris , I will make these healthy balls for my journey’s snack, wish I can find some vegetarian or vegan food over there, esperically I wish the weather will be good.
Raw Walnut Cranberry Energy Ball
Ingredient: ( make 16 balls )
- 16 Large Medjool dates, stones removed, soak in 2 to 3 tbsp of warm water

- 1/2 pack of Stevia
- 1/2 cup Dried cranberries
- 1 tbsp Agave nectar
- 4 tbsp Toasted black and white sesame seeds for coating
- Soak the pitted dates into warm water for at least 2 hours before you make this energy ball, drain and reserve the liquid.
- Toast the nuts, whatever your liked. Set aside
- Put the toasted nuts, into a food processor, you can blend it into fine form or just coarsely ground to suit your liked.
- Add the remaining ingredients except the nectar and sesame seeds, start to blend it all and they start to come together, if the mixture seems a bit dry, slowly add the nectar now until it meet your deserve.
- Take about one tablespoon of the mixture onto your palm, roll into a ball and dump into the sesame seeds, play around and set it one a plate, done! 🙂
- The last step is stuff into your mouth!
- No matter of what kind of the nuts, it will work on this recipe, just do whatever you have or you like.
- You can swap the sesame seeds to some toasted desiccated coconut or even cocoa powder.
