High Energy Snack Box
A big request this back-to-school (back to the office) season is a cold snack or lunch idea to tuck into backpacks and purses that’ll stay good for a few hours until hunger hits.
These types of things are super convenient when there’s no kitchen available to heat things up.
This snack box is packed with healthy fats and makes for a great snack for someone who is very active during the day.
Healthy fats are satisfying and supportive between larger meals.
We have lots and lots of different lunchboxes/snack boxes on our website to give you many fun ideas and inspiration to pack nutritious snacks & lunches for yourself and your kids.
I have linked quite a few different variations below to give you loads of new ideas!
Having a few of these in the fridge definitely helps us stay out of the drive-thru, and concession stands.

High Energy Ball Recipe
makes 18 balls
3 oz raw pecans
3 oz Medjool dates, pitted
1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
1 Tbsp cacao powder
1 Tbsp raw honey
2 Tbsp peanut or almond butter
½ cup shredded unsweetened
coconut (“Let’s do Organic” brand tastes best)
In a food processor, add the pecans, Medjool dates, ground flaxseed, cacao powder, honey, and peanut or almond butter.
Process for 2-3 minutes, or until the mixture is well combined and sticky.
To form your energy balls, take about 2 teaspoons of mixture and shape each one with your clean hands.
Then, roll each ball in shredded coconut.
To store longer-term, refrigerate for about a week or freeze for 2 months.
