Lemon Turmeric Energy Balls

Before your afternoon or evening workout, top up your tank with one of these energizing balls.

Why It's Good For You:

During the day you run your tank dry. Most of us often feel sluggish in the afternoon and look for a pick-me-up to give us the boost before our training session. It is important to feed your body carbohydrates before your afternoon workout for a consistent energy release during training. This recipe contains medjool dates and oats for a hit of carbohydrates, fats from almonds and chia seeds to slow down the energy release, and lemon and turmeric as preventative measure against post-workout inflammation.


(use organic where possible)

  • 12 Medjool dates
  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup almonds or cashews
  • 4 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tsp turmeric ground
  • Extra 1/4 cup shredded coconut for dusting


  1. Remove the pits from dates and place in food processor.
  2. Add the other ingredients to the food processor and blend until mixture turns into a dough-like consistency.
  3. With a small spoon, scoop the mixture and roll into balls. Roll the balls in shredded coconut and place on the baking sheet. Chill until firm.
  4. Store energy balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator until serving.
