I’m a huge fan of energy balls as a homemade, minimally processed way of powering your diet with a healthful snack. You can whip up these these no-bake, vegan, gluten-free balls in minutes in your food processor, then pack them away in a container in your freezer or fridge to grab all week long. Pack them in your gym bag, lunchbox, backpack, or picnic basket, and keep them on hand for a healthful snack or pre- or post-workout boost. At 110 calories each, these Bliss Berry Energy Balls provide a boost of slow-digesting carbs, different types of fibers, healthy fats, protein, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals.

- Place oats, hemp seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds, and sunflower seeds in the container of a food processor. Process for a few minutes, until ingredients are finely ground.

- Pour mixture into a bowl, cover, and chill for about 1 hour.
- Remove from refrigerator and form into small balls by hand. Place coconut on a dish and roll each ball into the coconut. Refrigerate until serving time.
- Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer until serving time.
