It took every ounce of effort I have right now to get these up, it’s been a rough couple of days with my morning sickness (except its an all day thing!). The heat isn’t helping but our AC is getting installed next week so there’s some reprieve coming. I wanted to post these yesterday, but I just couldn’t get to it, so it was a goal to get them up today.

These treats are one of my all time favorite random creations. I was craving a quick and easy raw treat one night, and literally threw whatever I had in a bowl, mixed and out came this delicious snack that my friends and family went nuts for! The best thing about these is that you can add or take out whatever you feel like, they are so versatile. I made them into both balls and bars, but the balls are my favorite. I keep them in the fridge but they don’t last longer than a few days! Give them a try, you won’t regret it, especially to help fuel those little ones running around!

Raw Superfood Balls & Bars

  • Servings: Makes one 9x9 pan of bars and 15 balls
  • Print
Filled with all the best super foods, this quick and easy snack is your next go to treat. Healthy and delicious, the perfect combo.

Ingredients:

notes: You can make these as just balls or just bars. If you only make balls you will get about 30, if you make bars you will get two 9×9 pans. The nuts are optional but add a great crunch. Add or take out anything you want!

Instructions:
Place oats, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, cacao nibs, and pecans in a large bowl. Place goji berries in a small bowl and fill with warm water. Allow to soak for 5 minutes or until they soften a bit. Once slightly soft, drain water and place berries into the bowl with the rest of the ingredients.

Place dates, vanilla extract, salt and water in a food processorblender or high speed blender. Mix until partially smooth and partially chunky. This is similar to my date paste recipe but not as smooth and has a tad less water. Put into the bowl with the rest of the ingredients. Using your hands, mix everything together well until you get a dough like consistency.

Place half the mixture into a square baking dish lined with parchment and press down firmly. With the other half roll into 1 inch balls. Roll the balls in shredded coconut until covered.

The last two days have been rough, the heat makes me really sick but AC is being installed next week so reprieve is on it’s way. All I could stomach was a plain baked potato, but here’s the version that everyone else is eating! The littles loved it. First veggie loaded baked potato for them I realized! #vegan #veggiesdontbite #glutenfree #wfpb #whatpregnantveganseat #whatvegankidseat

Since I opened the can of worms yesterday with @dreenaburton it’s about time I bite the bullet and just pick one! Especially with this little one coming and the added baby food making to my list of recipes. Deciding between the Blendtec Designer 725 and the Vitamix Professional Series 750. Thoughts, likes, dislikes??? #veganbloggerproblems #blendtecorvitamix

So today’s been a doozy. Started with me dry heaving in the bushes at the boys swim lessons. Nice right? But the most amazing mother in the world came to my rescue with this, her homemade hummus…a pregnancy sickness healer. For some reason my stomach loves this. It’s light and fluffy, almost whipped, thanks to her SECRET ingredient. Tangy with just enough flavor to fulfill me but not overdo it. Super healthy and has the protein and iron I need. And guess what, she helped me throw together a few pics so that I can post on the blog! Not as cutely styled as usual, but good enough for this sick girl. Just doing my best. And it felt so good to snap a few again…look for this next week. It’s amazing! #vegan #glutenfree #wfpb #whatpregnantveganseat #whatveganseat #vegansofig #veganfoodshare
