Mango Coconut Energy Balls


  • 85g of Dried Mango
  • 75g of Gluten Free Oats
  • 35g of Desiccated Coconut
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Vanilla Powder or 1 Vanilla Pod

These are a great nut free alternative to the usual suspects. The tropical mango and coconut combo makes them gorgeously chewy and I toast the oats slightly at the beginning to bring out the flavour. They’re perfect for a quick energy boost on the go or for bulking up lunch boxes, I store mine in a jar on the counter so a healthy snack is always in plain sight. They should keep for about 5 days.

Preheat the oven to 180’C. Roughly chop the mango and add it a bowl. Pour boiling water over it and let it soak for 5-10 minutes.

Spread the oats out on a baking tray and bake for 8-10 minutes until lightly toasted and golden.

Drain the mango and add it to a food processor with the toated oats, vanilla powder and desiccated coconut. Blend on high until you have a sticky, crumbly paste.

Roll the mixture into balls and then roll them in a little more desiccated coconut, if desired.

    What could be used instead of the coconut?

      To keep it nut free you could use sunflower seeds or if he can have nuts, almonds and cashews work great. Just use either of them in place of the coconut in the food processor x
