Spinach Power Balls

Spinach Power Balls

These little energy bites are packed with seeds, nuts, fruit, and greens. They make a great snack and store well in the fridge for up to a week.


  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ½ cup natural peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon powdered spinach*
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup rolled oats not quick
  • ¼ cup ground flaxseed
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Optional Coatings

  • coconut flakes
  • finely chopped nuts
  • melted chocolate


  • Soak the raisins in ¼ cup warm water for 15 to 20 minutes. Drain the water, reserving it, and process raisins in a food processor. Add peanut butter, powdered spinach, and honey, and blend until smooth.
  • In a large bowl, combine oats, flax, chia, and salt. Add the processed ingredients and mix with your hands. If the mixture is too dry to roll into balls, add a little of the reserved water.
  • Roll the mixture into bite-sized balls. Roll in coatings, if desired.
