We all need energy for our daily activities and we also need continuous supply of energy for our body and mind to keep going on and on! Else, fatigue and lethargy kills all the fun and charm of enjoy... the life without vigor, power and on wants to lead to !!!

It just so happened that one fine day, in an endeavour to experiment with the super sweetness of dates, I created an amazing recipe. I love relishing dates, they are full of minerals and essential nutrients, vitamins, high on iron and sugars and other elements!!!!!!! Because of its utter sweetness, one perhaps cannot relish more than quite a few. Then one starts feeling heavy on the system, because of the excessive natural sugars in it. I have tried that couple of times and ended up thinking...wish I could add more ingredients to it and make it more worth!!! and...I just did the same!!!

I really wanted to experiment and create something that adds more value to dates and is little less sweet more satisfying and filled with the goodness of essential minerals, vitamins and oils. Above all should be vegan. Definitely…I should give it a try, no matter whatever the outcome be!

So, I sat down and finally decided to use just three ingredients to make my recipe that is super good on energy quotient.

I finally decided to settle with THREE Core ingredients, that's it !!!


1) DATES: Super Nutritious with Potassium, Magnesium, Copper, Manganese, Iron, Vitamin B6 and high in antioxidants with abundant health benefits, high in fiber, Protein, Carbs, and Calories aplenty!!! Enough to power you Up!!! :)


2) DESICCATED COCONUT POWDER: Rich in essential nutrients, high nutritious value such as Vitamin C, E , B, contains Riboflavin, Dietary fiber, and necessary minerals such as, magnesium, selenium, copper and calcium, promotes cardiovascular health, also contains coconut oil beneficial to treat Alzheimer problems, and several other health issues and problems that it can be very beneficial in.


3) ROASTED BENGAL GRAM FLOUR: Its Rich in fiber, protein, minerals, & fatty acids, has a very low glycemic index therefore controls blood sugar, full of Protein and fiber, gives energy, prevents anemia, heart healthy and gluten free!!!

JUST these THREE Ingredients, for the recipe : Dates, Desiccated coconut and Roasted Bengal gram flour. That’s it!!! Nothing more…just keep it simple, quick and easy, above all ready to eat. NO Oven, No Microwave! We in 21st Century are super dependent on the gadgets and devices. I try to avoid as much as I can! Honestly !!!

OK! So here is the QUICK, SIMPLE & EASY Recipe!

Keep these three ingredients handy…Dates, Desiccated coconut and roasted Bengal gram flour.

[I must tell you that I did not even use the blender/grinder to make a paste of dates, because it would not work out that way, instead, dates being sticky would stick to the grinder and make it a bit difficult, therefore, I used the potato masher, very quick n easy. The process, might be a little messy but its all about how quickly & smartly you combine all these three ingredients!!!]

Alright! So Let's make the Energy Balls and Here we Go!


Take 250gm of Bengal gram flour in a pan and dry roast, till it turns golden pale brown. DO not burn, else it turns a bit bitter!!! Keep stirring while dry roasting on medium flame, once its ready, keep it aside, to cool down a bit.


Take approx 500gm of dates (remove the seeds!) and transfer them to a large flat bowl with large base of even a flat tray would do. Using the potato masher, mash the dates so that they turn into a thick solid matter but not the paste.


Take 250gm of desiccated coconut powder in a pan and keep it on a medium flame for couple of minutes, till you start getting the aroma of coconut oil in the air, that the time when you have to quickly take it off the flame, do not over heat and burn, else you will spoil all the essential oils present in it. Keep an eye and be quick to stir and take it off the flame. This whole thing interestingly is super quick to make. You Bet!!!


Now transfer the desiccated coconut powder into the bowl with mashed dates and at this time the desiccated coconut should be little hot to warm and start mixing both with gradually adding spoon by spoon the roasted Bengal gram flour. Now this is little messy and you gotta get your hands into it.

In couple of minutes, this whole thing will be like a big thick dough, with all the three ingredients, thoroughly mixed and combined.


Make small balls and with the help of hands turn them into perfectly round balls and till they form the shape of a sphere, it will take couple of seconds to less than a minute.

Roll it in desiccated coconut (keep some, aside for this purpose!) & ITS READY TO BE SERVED.

Interestingly, You can also cut these balls, into equal halves and then decorate with sliced almonds, the way you want!!! Bit of an effort though, but all worth, at the end, when you sit back and relish them, with family & friends!




Or sliced cashew nuts is another option to beautifully decorate them and enjoy




Another option is to decorate them together in a platter and serve to please the ones, you love/like/admire/appreciate!!!




Ready to eat and recharge the body with the energy of these three ingredients makes it such a worthy recipe.


Relish one or two energy balls in a day with Hot Milk/Tea/Coffee or eat it as such.

They are damn chewy and super gooey and I love that element in them. Like a chocolate...or more like a chocolate brownie! Absolutely!

You can also add a spoon of cocoa powder and this whole thing will for sure turn into chocolate brownie! Else relish as such!

There are no unhealthy ingredients in it, no preservatives and it can stay up to anywhere between a week to a fortnight in proper ventilated conditions, you can also keep it in the refrigerator if you want them to be served chilled but they may turn hard with coconut oil solidifying.

Which ever form, shape, style, they definitely are so yummy and truly delicious! Tried, tested & tasted !!!


Thanks for reading & watching!

Wishing you all Good luck, with Lots of Love!!! Cheers!

Blogging…Its Charm & The Reality!!!

Blogging…seems so much fun…!!! Isn’t it! Yes! Ofcourse…it is!...but…trust you me…Blogging is not all that easy…though it seems pretty interesting to get engaged with lot of people on the web. There must be a million sites involved in blogging and all…but I always question how many of them actually produce original quality content that is really beneficial or purposeful… and for some it’s the same content, slightly modified here and there…which is indeed a sad state of affairs!!!
The only thing comes to my mind is Charles Darwin’s Theory which will remain applicable till there is life on Earth!!!
Struggle for Existence…!
Survival of The Fittest…!
Such a Life!!!....You will definitely get noticed…One day!!!...for sure!!!...Till then patiently wait for your turn!!!
