Need a mid-day energy boost? These easy, no-bake Maple Walnut Energy Balls combine walnuts, oats, dates, maple syrup and are rolled in diced walnuts for added crunch. Recipe by Crowded Kitchen.


  • 2 cups walnuts, plus 1/4 cup for coating
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup Medjool dates, pitted (about 7 dates)
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Add 2 cups walnuts, oats, dates, maple syrup, vanilla and salt to a food processor. Blend until smooth and the dough forms together into cohesive balls, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Finely dice the remaining 1/4 cup walnuts and add to a plate.
  3. Form the dough into 16 balls and roll each ball in the diced walnuts to coat. Store the energy balls in an airtight container in the fridge for a week, or in the freezer for up to three months.
