Wet your palms with a little water. Take a small portion of the mixture and shape into one-inch size round balls.

Store the energy balls in an air-tight container.

According to Karle, the energy balls are packed with antioxidants such that they are “filled with anti-inflammatory and immune boosting properties”. This is the ideal morning and mid-afternoon snack to strengthen immunity, she mentioned.
