POWER BALLS RECIPE: LYZABETH’S POWER BALL 2.0!
About five years ago I created a power ball recipe for the my TV show Body Fuel. It was a big hit as it was raw, gluten & dairy free, loaded with anti-oxidants and other skin and heat healthy ingredients.

PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE CHIP RAW POWER BALLS RECIPE
This ingredient yields 30 power balls are roughly 20 grams each. (*In the vid, I say 30 grams, but I’ve changed it to 20 grams since then to reduce calories per serving.)
1/2 cup ground pumpkin seeds (measure raw pumpkin seeds before grinding)
¼ ground flax seeds
1 tbls cinnamon
1 tsp ground maca root
¼ cup shredded coconut
¼ cup unsweetened cacao nibs
½ cup dried cherries (or other fave dried or fresh fruit i.e pomegranate seeds)
1/2 cup semi sweet dark chocolate chips
1/3 cup chia seeds
1 cup organic peanut butter (or other nut butter if you prefer)
4 Majool dates ground:
- Side note make sure to get fresh gooey dates. If they are dry, you will not get the sweet taste or sticky texture necessary for the recipe. It’s best if you soak the dates in a small glass bowl overnight in room temperature with a breathable cloth or paper towel to cover them.
- Add to food processor or magic bullet: Pumpkin seeds and Majool dates. Once each is ground and blended, place in a bowl.
- Add all other ingredients and stir. After initial stir, ensure your hands are thoroughly washed and kneed the mixture together with your hands.
- Use an ice cream scoop, or just use your hands and create a ball of power ball with your hands and pack it together until it is round. Each power ball should measure out at roughly 20 grams. Place in Tupperware and keep in the fridge.
