A blog post two days in a row? Now, that hasn’t happened in a long time, has it?

Well, let me tell you, you’re gonna be glad I blogged today, as these little treats are here to brighten your day!

Remember the cashew butter DIY post I shared yesterday? Many of you reached out to me asking how I eat it and/or on what. I personally love eating it by the spoonful, but I also love spreading it on things like Paleo breads or banana slices. However, a very fun way to use your Cashew Butter is as an ingredient for various Paleo recipes. I felt like I needed to show you a concrete example on how to use this nut butter on a recipe, so I decided to make a delicious “no bake” treat for you. I call these: “Paleo Power Balls – a no bake treat”!

These Power Balls are packed with fresh ingredients, carrying lots of complementary flavors that your taste buds will be very fond of. They are fun to eat and super fast to make; a total no-brainer when it comes to entertaining or sharing some food-love with the ones you care about.

They also give you a ton of energy (after you eat one or two), which is why these make for the perfect snack to have before going on a hike or for whenever you need a quick pick-me-up.

Try them; you and the fam will LOVE these little guys!

Paleo Power Balls
Serves: 12 Power Balls
  • 1-cup cashew butter (DIY recipe here!)
  • ¼ cup blanched almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 3 tablespoons dark chocolate chips (or carob chips)
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Add all ingredients to food processor and process for about 1 minute, or until all ingredients are well combined.
  2. Grab the equivalent of about ½ golf ball worth of mixture and roll it in the palm of your hands until it becomes a perfect Circle. Set it on a plate.
  3. Repeat step 2 until mixture is gone. Should make about 12 Power Balls.
  4. Serve them immediately or refrigerate to enjoy later. Should last about a week if refrigerated!

  1. OMG, have just made these tonight, halved the recipe and made them quite small but managed seven small power balls – haven’t eaten any yet (as chilling in the fridge – them, not me) but scraped the bowl and they are delicious! Used store-bought cashew butter but can imagine home-made would be fab! Thanks for a great guilt-free recipe.

  2. I follow AIP – do you think I could swap the cashew butter for coconut butter and the almond flour for coconut or tigernut flour?

    • Hi Bronwen! I’ve never tried those swaps before, so I cannot tell you if it will work. I imagine the cashew butter can be replaced by the coconut butter no problem; however, both coconut and tigernut flours are extremely dry and they will soak up a lot more moisture than the almond flour would, so keep this in mind (perhaps add less flour than the recipe calls for, or add in more of the wet ingredients). Good luck!! XO
