Pecan Pie Energy Balls Recipe
By Dr. Josh Axe
December 15, 2021
Everybody loves a twist on a classic, including at holiday time. Even better would be a healthy twist on this dessert favorite. My gluten-free pecan pie balls recipe pleases traditional pecan pie fans as well as those looking to improve their eating habits.
These no-bake pecan balls are very easy to make, with just seven ingredients and only requiring mixing, shaping and refrigerating. The not-so-secret is Bone Broth Protein Vanilla, which powers these pecan pie balls with gut-supporting protein. (You can also use Collagen Peptides Vanilla.)
In fact, each "energy ball" is a perfect macronutrient snack, with 10 grams of carbs, 7 grams of fat and 7 grams of protein.
Place pecans in a food processor and pulse until in fine pieces. Next, add in the protein powder and sea salt, pulsing until well combined.
Halve and pit the dates, then melt the coconut oil in a small pan. Add the dates, honey, coconut oil and vanilla to the mixture. Process until combined and sticky.
Scrap the mixture out of the food processor onto a wooden cutting board. Form into 14 balls. Place them on a plate and refrigerate for 1 hour.
