Julie says of these maca energy balls, “Easy to make and deliciously full of natural ingredients, the combination of maca and brazil nuts tastes almost like peanut butter … with a coconuty embrace of course. The results are irresistible.”

The flavor of these vegan energy balls is incredible. They are so easy and really delicious. They’re really cute flattened like raw cookies, so I’ve photographed them both ways.

  1. Throw all of the ingredients in a food processor fitted with the s blade and pulse until a coarse dough has formed. The consistency should stick together, yet still crumble like a cookie. If the dough is too dry, add water, 1 teaspoon at a time until the dough sticks. If the dough is too wet, add spoonfuls of extra coconut until the dough is just right.
  2. Using a tablespoon measurer, scoop the dough into balls, and in extra coconut.
  3. Flatten into cookies, and serve.
