Liquorice raw energy balls

Licorice raw energy balls

Im a sucker for licorice! Must be my Swedish genes :) I bought licorice root powder the other day and I had to try to make energy balls with it. It was super easy. I wish I had some anis seed oil at home, but next time I will add that to the mix. If you have the oil at home, please add few drops.


1/2 cup soaked cashews

1/2 cup soaked almonds

2 tbsp molasses

pinch of salt

2-3 tsp of licorice powder (depends of how much you love licorice ;)

pinch of vanilla

10 dates

Optional:  few drops of anis seed oil 


Mix everything in your food processor or mixer. Form into balls or bars. Enjoy!
