EASY VEGAN ENERGY BALLS // protein packed snack recipes


Hey playing it off the phone lately not a big deal you know you scan I couldn’t find the Bluetooth speaker wasn’t charged it’s the whole thing from step back welcome back to another freestyle Friday every single week we’re gonna cook it my way recipes are free you know what keep it hot so grab that pen and paper let me show you what I got mmm feeling sweets today complete today look at those date a I’m gonna coke yeah yeah yeah um super super stoked about today’s epi I know those rhymes are getting a little weak at the end still a little early for me and driving a lot welcome back to the episode of freestyle Friday how’s the intro really good okay perfect I quickly want to introduce if you guys are not familiar my name is a Minh I live in a little Sprinter van and this is our kitchen and we make recipe videos every single Friday so today we’re coming at you with a highly requested dessert now Beck and I don’t usually eat dessert Beck’s behind the camera she’s gorgeous you can check out some other videos to see her smiling face when we do eat desserts it’s kind of like we just want a little bite at the end you know like a little sugar hit to get you going and if you’re feeling that vibe stay tuned I’m gonna teach you how to make two energy balls they are stupid easy no refined sugar they have like four ingredients five ingredients and you can sub things out if you don’t like certain ingredients you can’t screw this one up let’s jump into it the first type of ball I’m gonna show you is a date base you guys have never had dates before I don’t usually eat them on their own but they are delicious they’re super super sweet so we’re not gonna have any sugar to this one it’s just gonna be straight up the sweetness from the dates awesome to start we’re gonna grab about a cup of dates and if your dates are hard you can soak them in a little bit of hot water for 10 minutes and then just make sure you drain them off really well these ones aren’t too bad they’re pretty soft now we’re gonna have a hell of a time here at the studio because we only have a blender I would recommend if you’re at home and you have an S blade mixer ting you know food processor definitely use that this is going to be an absolute disaster cannot wait to clean it with cold water later we’re in a band we don’t have hollow okay so I’m gonna start by just shredding those down clear it from all the sides because it will start to stick the Vitamix killed it a little surprised by that but that is the texture you want this first energy ball we’re actually gonna build it right in the blender we’re gonna start with a little bit of peanut butter about maybe three tablespoons somebody doesn’t like peanut butter or has an allergy I would recommend almond butter cashew butter hemp butter pumpkin seed butter any kind of butter substitute 30 chocolate chips you can count them out if you’d like 34 and a little bit of oh action yeah hop and then we’re gonna put some hemp seeds because like in a day you can’t screw this up like I said so if you’ve got flax seeds throw flax and you got chia-chia I got ham that’s one that I’m just putting like a anymore boom boom bang we can throw it back in there and let the blender do the work keep your life easy peel it off the sides this is why I would recommend the s-blade this will work it just takes a little bit more time just tasting real nice one more time looks a little bit like a crumb but once you roll that together the date will stick it real nice make sure you got nice and clean hands unless you’re just eating them yourself and it doesn’t matter I would just grab like a little pinch like that Cui’s it nice and tight look at that with your one hand and then you’ve got this little ball packed full of protein and goodness and natural sweetness I think that’s a really good size something you can just pop in your mouth after dinner you could bring a few of these for lunch snack on them throw the day great way to just get a little bit of energy I’m gonna leave these two back to get rolling and I’m gonna start with my other ball I’m giving you two recipes in one video guys smash that thumbs up first you’re gonna make noise you need to leave you can sit stay for 20 minutes so for this one is even easier you don’t need a blender you’re gonna use your hands for your balls babe so to start for this one we’re gonna use a maple syrup pond a maple and we’re gonna do a boat boat a boot I would say third over pail if you don’t have maple syrup or you can’t afford maple syrup that’s cool you could use any kind of substitute agave coconut nectar anything you can find or you could use regular sugar as well but maple syrup is amazing we’re Canadian we can’t afford it but we bought it so we’re starting with mixing all of our wet as you can see peanut butter we’re gonna do about a 1/2 cup or basically what’s left in this jar you’re not gonna mess this up if you you know over or under do an ingredient you’ll be able to try it and say hey look that’s not sweet enough or too much salt or whatever I’m gonna go ahead and just whisk that up these are total freestyle you guys thought of yourself the last following taste that Wow okay so the show’s over Rebecca and I are just gonna spoon this into each other’s mouths next we are going to dump in some flax seed can by ground or full-si this is golden flax and all I did is just busted that down in a blender two tablespoons of flax mix our own we’re gonna use some nice thick rolled oats feel free to sub if you’re gluten free for gluten-free oats I’m gonna put a cup Buttercup in there and cocoa nut just under a cup of coconut shreds we’re just gonna have a few dark chocolate chips having a look at the consistency here it looks fantastic but I think when I go to actually mix those together it is going to be a little bit too firm so what I’m gonna do is just bust up a little bit of oat flour my trusty dirty blender and just a little bit of oats into a powder and that’s gonna help mix everything together that’s old flour not only is this recipe super easy to make it’s oddly satisfying to run your hand through sticky oats so maybe that’s another reason to try this one about and I’m just kind of needing it because I’ve heard someone else say the word needing before and I always wanted to use it I don’t know if I’m gonna be able to roll these so much like I didn’t really roll the other ones but I kind of shape them into balls I think that’s easier the best thing to do with your hand just call up your friends Bruce Bruce and say hey Bruce Bruce please clean my hands oh don’t tell Mom bris all right we’ve rolled our balls they look amazing so we got about 20 out of the chocolate chip coconut ones and then the date balls maybe a little bit less but of course you could double triple quadruple the recipe we’ve had like ball parties where we’ve smashed out like 6070 balls and then split up amongst the family get a bit of an assembly line going super fun thing it’s very easy guys like this is such an easy dessert great option to show up at a friend’s place if they invite you over and yeah they’re absolutely delicious once again I would recommend putting them in the fridge even them cold serving them cold and you can top them however you like as well I hope you enjoyed the video I knew you were asking for desserts I’ve got a lot of exciting stuff coming up now that we’re back in Toronto I feel like we’ll have more time and energy and get a little bit more creative on the show Bruce you’re whining we gave you a little bit of peanut butter and now you need to shut up for the outro please tag me in your pics smash the thumbs up if you liked it also subscribe to our Channel we’re coming at you every single Friday freaky freaky Friday we’ll see you next week peace love stay hungry

  2. lmao I use that cleaning hack too! The best is how well they clean dirty plates / containers ๐Ÿ™‚ Obv I actually wash them after haha is that gross? oh well ๐Ÿ™‚ awesome video!

  3. Guys, don't wash your dishes with cold water. Heat some water in your stock pot and use that to wash your dishes. so much easier

  4. Try running your hands under water before rolling them, that way there not going to stick! Cool recipe! Didnโ€™t make them like that before, definitely going to try it out. Thanks โœŒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I've been a viewer for a long while, and I've never checked into FF before because cooking is my weakness. Thanks for showing something that someone like me could manage!
    Also, I can't comment on ReRoot on Spotify, so I'll tell you here how awesome it is. I love the live Q&A podcast idea. It's a huge motivation to listen to while I work on my bus build. Thanks โœŒ๏ธ

  6. I see you guys always using Bob's oats and like most of their products they of course rock. We started using jars and getting organic oats by bulk though for eco reasons + price and honestly I can't tell the difference. 1.29-1.60/lb depending on where you go which means usually better deal! win win!

    I can't offer to do all your vids for free, but I can at least do the recipe ones for you. Thanks for another great recipe! (heart) you guys.

  16. My most favorite "Free Style Friday" ever! I am such a "Granola Granny" these two recipes are perfect! Back in TO?!? What's up with Bob? Can't wait for the van update and assuming Bob's van is ready to roll…………..where will the adventure begin?

  17. My whole family loves these & I love your foodie Friday videos. PS you were my first videos that got me interested in building out a van. Guess what we bought a promaster to build out yesterday. YAY!!

  18. I have a question for Eamon, what do you use to care for your tattoo? I will get one later this year and I live in Sweden so some products that people reccomend don't exist here so I just want to know what you use.

  19. Eamon and Bec, love your videos! My husband and I just bought a camper van and we are heading to Bon Echo on Thursday (we are in Toronto too!). Totally pumped for new adventures. Anyway. Eamon. How long do you think you can store these little balls of deliciousness in the fridge. Looking to prep some things before hitting the road ๐Ÿ™‚ I am a vegetarian and really appreciate your recipes.

  20. Hey….I just ordered a starter kit. The original….Iโ€™m just gonna sit here til it arrives…If Iโ€™m lucky, Iโ€™ll be drinking your ChaiWallaChai while watching the next Freestyle Friday … Love your videos….Sandra (from San Francisco)

  21. Hey Eamon & Bec! Been subscribed and following you guys for about a month now. Love the content that you guys put out! I myself am a meat and potatoes guy but your freestyle Friday videos have inspired my wife and I to start trying some vegan meals. We also think that a cook book from you guys would be awesome! Possible in the future??? Thanks for all you do. P.S. the dog looked great in the van!!!

  22. YUM!
    But for real can we see Bob's van? I keep dreaming about what he has done… my mind is going crazy! Love you guys to death and Eamon your sister Amanda is so adorable and inspiring, as a strong feminist I have to say she is a great addition to the YT community.

    PS. Give out hugs for me to the following earth angels: Bob, Bec, and Amanda!

  23. I am loving your podcast! As a college student trying to figure out the life I want to live, hearing your story and perspective is so interesting and motivating! keep it up!!

  24. I'm late to comment, but just wanted to say thank you for getting the US shipping a little cheaper! I was finally able to get my husband your chai kit for his birthday. YAY!!! He will be so excited when he finds out because chai is his FAVORITE. Could one of your free style Friday videos incorporate chai flavors into it? Just a thought since I'm excited! ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy not Friday! haha
