Low-Carb, Low-Sugar Nut & Seed Energy Balls

These are perfect for a quick energy boost before the gym or for recovery afterward.


  • 1 cup almonds (or any other nut you prefer)
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup flax seeds
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp almond butter (or any other nut butter)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1-2 tbsp water or unsweetened almond milk (if needed for consistency)
  • Optional: 1-2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder for a chocolatey flavor


  1. Preparation: Line a tray or flat dish with parchment paper.

  2. Pulse Nuts and Seeds: In a food processor, add almonds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and pulse until you get a coarse mixture. Don't over-process, or you might end up with nut butter!

  3. Add Remaining Ingredients: To the processor, add chia seeds, flax seeds, shredded coconut, almond butter, vanilla extract, salt, and cocoa powder (if using). Blend until everything starts coming together in a slightly sticky mass. If the mixture is too dry, add water or almond milk one tablespoon at a time until the desired consistency is achieved.

  4. Shape into Balls: Using clean hands, take small amounts of the mixture and roll them into balls, roughly the size of a golf ball.

  5. Chill: Place the rolled balls on the tray with parchment paper and let them chill in the refrigerator for at least 1-2 hours.

  6. Store: Once set, transfer them to an airtight container. These can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week or in the freezer for longer shelf life.

Nutritional Info: These energy balls are rich in healthy fats, fiber, and protein due to the nuts and seeds. They are naturally low in carbs and sugars, making them an excellent choice for those watching their sugar and carbohydrate intake.

You can also experiment with this basic recipe by adding or subtracting ingredients based on personal preferences and dietary needs. Enjoy your workout and the energy boost!
