Easy Vegan Energy Balls – Sweetened with Yacon Syrup

Easy Vegan Energy Balls


  • Food Processor
  • Mixing Bowl


For the energy balls (makes 10 truffles)

  • 80 g toasted cashew nuts
  • 40 g yacon syrup
  • 40 g medjool dates
  • 40 g ground almonds
  • 1 tsp water
  • 1/2 tsp maca powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • pinch of allspice powder
  • 1/2 tsp ginger powder

For the coating (optional)

  • 10 g cacao powder


  • Begin by blending the cashew nuts with water, yacon syrup, and dates in a food processor until a thick smooth paste is formed. Transfer the paste into a mixing bowl, add the rest of the ingredients and mix well using your hands until a smooth dough is formed. Divide the mixture into 10 even parts (you can use a scale and weigh up 10 balls to 21g each). Roll the balls using your hands and put them in the freezer for 1 hour. Serve plain or coated in cacao powder. They will last for approximately 2 weeks in the fridge and up to 2 months in the freezer.
