Banana Bread Energy Balls


  • 110 g cashew nuts
  • 150 g rolled oats (use gluten-free certified oats if required)
  • 2 medium ripe bananas
  • 50 g ground almonds
  • 3 tbsp dark chocolate chips
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp unsweetened finely shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds


  • Place the cashew nuts into a food processer and pulse until it turns to a grainy paste. This paste will help the mixture stick together.
  • Add the rolled oats and pulse again for a few seconds to break up the oats a little bit. Add the bananas, and pulse again until fully combined.
  • Stir in the ground almonds, then add the chocolate chips, vanilla extract, cinnamon and salt. Stir again until combined. You should have a thick, sticky paste, that can be rolled into balls. If the mixture is too loose, stir in an extra spoonful of oats.
  • Place the shredded coconut and chia seeds into a shallow bowl and mix together. The chia seeds will sink to the bottom, that’s fine.
  • Scoop a heaped teaspoon of the mixture into your hand, then roll into a ball. Roll around in the coconut mixture, pressing down a little so the coconut sticks and a few chia seeds also stick. Place on a plate or tray.
  • Repeat until all of the mixture is used. Eat immediately, or store in an air-tight container at room temperature. The banana balls should keep for 2-3 days.
