Dr. Jay’s Power Balls

Written by Eydie Desser

Before I was plant-based, I had digestion issues; let’s just say, I wasn’t “regular” if you catch my drift. I was told about Dr. Jay, an ayurvedic doctor, and met with him. He gave me a few recipes for foods I should eat on a regular basis. His protocol didn’t work for me, but going plant-based did! I am happy I met with him, as he cared a lot and gave me some delicious and very nutritious recipes. This Power Ball snack is a winner, and very filling! Quick to make and lasts quite a while in the refrigerator, so feel free to double the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 2 TB hemp seeds
  • 2 TB pumpkin seeds
  • 1 TB dried mulberries
  • 1 TB ground flax seed
  • 3 dates or dried prunes, seeds removed (I use juicy dates)

Instructions

1- Add all of the ingredients to the bowl of a food processor and process until thoroughly combined.

2- Remove contents and form into balls about 1-1/2” diameter.

3- Refrigerate in covered container for up to 5 days.
