Guayaki Yerba Mate Energy Balls
The holiday season is in full swing which can take a serious toll on our bodies. For me, it’s keeping my energy levels up that comes to be the biggest challenge. Darker days, sugar packed foods, and stress all contribute to these feelings of lower energy (aka the want to run away and hibernate). What we consume is extremely important during these times, and aside from the main meals, the snacks we eat can play a huge role in our diet. To prevent reaching for the cookies and other sugary foods when your hungry between meals, it is good to have plenty of wholesome snacks whipped up and ready to go. So that is why today I’m back with Guayaki to bring you these delicious Yerba Mate energy balls to uplift your energy and help fuel your day.
One Cup Steeped Guayaki Yerba Mate
2 tbsp loose leaf or two mate bags/cup of water
8 Pitted Medjool Dates
2 Cups Oats
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons Local Honey
*Makes approx. 13
Brew your Guayaki Yerba Mate + let cool.
Using the same method as those Yerba Mate Overnight Oats- combine the mate, dates, and 1/4 cup oats into an airtight container. Let sit in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours.
Drain any excess mate from the mixture.
Add the oats/dates to a food processor or blender with the remainder oats, cinnamon, and honey. Blend until smooth + sticky.
Add mixture to refrigerator for 10 mins to help with the formation.
Take out of fridge and roll mixture into 1 inch balls. Sprinkle extra cinnamon on top.
