This easy energy ball uses natural ingredients to give you a quick bite of energy when you need it. Dried apricots and honey hold together the coconut and oats, while ginger and tahini deepen the sweet flavors. Ready in just 25 minutes, you can have these as a grab-and-go breakfast, afternoon snack or sweet treat after dinner.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine apricots, oats, coconut, tahini, honey, ginger and salt in a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped, 10 to 20 times, then process for about 1 minute, scraping down the sides as necessary, until the mixture is crumbly but can be pressed to form a cohesive ball.

  • With wet hands (to prevent the mixture from sticking to them), squeeze about 1 tablespoon of the mixture tightly between your hands and roll into a ball. Place in a storage container. Repeat with the remaining mixture.


To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months.

Made this recipe and it is pretty tasty but I wish the tahini is a little overpowering of the other ingredients. My only substitution was dried candied ginger instead of powdered for a little more kick. Read More

Wonderfully delicious and easy to make. I was concerned that the fat content was not provided in the print issue (or the recipe index at the back of the magazine) and emailed the editor, who confirmed all nutritional content is available online. Great for a Keto diet as the carb content is relatively low. The print recipe said 48 while online it said 32, but I got about 26 out of the batch because I probably made them too large. Tahini is a bit difficult to find, so I had to go to Sprouts, although Whole Foods and some Publix stores carry it. Excited to try all the other energy ball recipes! Thanks, Eating Well. The fact that you include nutritional content for your recipes makes a huge difference! Read More
