Recipe: Nettle Energy Balls


Nettle Energy Balls

about 50 ping pong-sized balls

These energy balls feed your adrenals, give you needed zip, help to clear congestion and inflammation.


  • 1/2 cup tahini

  • 1/2 cup nut butter of choice

  • 2 tsp powdered dried nettles

  • 1 tsp bee pollen

  • 1/2 tsp flaxseed or other good oil. I omit this if using the oil from the tahini.

  • 3/4 cup honey

  • 1/2 cup raisins

  • Oatmeal – enough to bind everything together to make balls that stick together.

  • Unsweetened coconut flakes


  1. Stir together all ingredients except oatmeal and coconut.

  2. Add the oatmeal, stir, and roll into balls.

  3. Roll in the unsweetened coconut flakes. If desired, add crushed cacao nibs, powdered unsweetened bakers chocolate, chopped dates and/or figs. Put a fresh blueberry or raspberry in the middle of each ball! Let your imagination take you! If using fresh fruit, refrigerate and eat within a couple days or freeze.


Can be frozen.
