Banana Bread Energy Balls

These banana balls are no-bake and simple to prepare. The oats and cinnamon give a delicious banana bread taste.




  1. Place the cashew nuts into a food processer and pulse until it turns into a grainy paste.
  2. Add the rolled oats and pulse again for a few seconds to break up the oats. Add the bananas, and pulse again until fully combined.
  3. 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.
  4. Place the shredded coconut and chia seeds into a shallow bowl and mix. The chia seeds will sink to the bottom, which is fine.
  5. 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.
  6. Repeat until all the mixture is used. Eat immediately, or store in an airtight container at room temperature. The banana balls should keep for 2-3 days.
