Apricot & Coconut Energy Ball Recipe Kit review
Energy balls are everywhere in the supermarkets at the moment, but they are one of my favourite healthy snacks to make at home and I love having a tub of them in the fridge for when I'm feeling peckish! If you'd like to make some too, why not try an Energy Ball Recipe Kit?

Following a successful Kickstarter funding campaign earlier this year, Energy Ball Recipe Kits were created by Victoria Prince, who has been experimenting with making lots of versions of these wholesome tasty snacks at home since 2014. Fast forward to the present day and Victoria's delicious Energy Ball Recipe Kits are now available as a subscription box, where you'll receive an exciting different flavour to create every month in the comfort of your home.

All of the high-quality ingredients used are vegan-friendly, and I was very happy to see that all of the packaging is also eco-friendly; the ingredients are portioned out into plant-based plastic bags which are 100% biodegradable and compostable, and the cardboard box is FSC Certified (Forest Stewardship Council) which can, of course, be recycled after use.

Victoria very kindly sent me her latest Energy Ball Recipe Kit to try out and the box slipped through my letterbox nicely. Opening up, I found a welcome card, plus all the details for this particular recipe. As you can see above, this kit is for Apricot & Coconut Energy Balls which sound amazing!

I received the following ingredients to make these:-
  • Pitted Dates
  • Ground Almonds
  • Milled Linseed
  • Coconut Flour
  • Ground Nutmeg
  • Peanut Butter
  • Coconut Oil
  • Dried Apricots
  • Desiccated Coconut

Making these energy balls is incredibly easy, and the enclosed leaflet provides handy step-by-step instructions based on the Mix, Roll, Love concept. There's no baking involved and all of the ingredients are provided for you in the kit - it's really that easy! 

I decided to make these in my food processor as it's the fastest method, but you can simply mix the majority of the ingredients into a bowl instead if you don't have one. 

I found the mixture to be a little dry, so I added a bit more Coconut Oil to mine to make them slightly more malleable when it came to the 'Roll' stage. This was definitely the fun part and I enlisted the help of my niece who was visiting to help me out. 

The finished product!

These Apricot & Coconut Energy Balls tasted amazing and have quite a strong Nutmeg flavour too, so they're a good one to try for this time of the year when things are getting a bit more seasonally spicy. Each recipe kit makes around 30 energy balls and can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for 7 days, or if you don't think you'll eat them all by then, you can pop them in the freezer to enjoy at a later date. In my house though, they were quickly devoured and barely lasted the week!

  1. I must admit, I haven't made my own energy balls at home yet although I do have a food processor but I've been meaning to make them for ages! I just need to buy some ingredients and do it.. Homemade is the best! Love the look of the energy balls you made, I guess it makes it easier when everything is provided to you and all you need to do is just make them!
