Just as quickly as I fell in love with energy bars, I quit buying them. Their appeal is certainly in their simple ingredients, delicious taste, and convenience, but they also happen to be incredibly easy to make. For the last 6 or 7 years I’ve been making my own (and saving money in the process). If you have a food processor, then you can make your own delicious date balls too!
To make these Coco Date balls I blended caramelly dates with toasted pecans, raw cacao powder, and uplifting MegaFood® Daily Energy Nutrient Booster Powder™, then rolled them in chunky shreds of coconut. All of these ingredients help to boost your energy, and keep you full thanks to plenty of fiber.*
The MegaFood® Daily Energy Nutrient Booster Powder™ is an unsweetened blend of FoodState® B12, Chromium, beet root, eleuthero root, ashwaganda, bacopa, and green tea. You’re probably familiar with B12 for its important role in maintaining proper neurological functioning and healthy formation of red blood cells.* Chromium, on the other hand, is a mineral that we don’t hear much about. It supports the body’s metabolic processes by regulating blood sugar and helping insulin transport glucose into cells, which in turn, gives you a boost of energy!* Eleuthero, ashwaganda, and bacopa are all herbs that have been used for thousands of years to help the body cope with stress.* My favorite way to use the Nutrient Booster Powder is in date balls like these. They add a nice flavor to the balls, and certainly helps support my energy throughout the day without stimulants like sugar or caffeine.*
