Ingredients Highlights

Almonds are a fantastic source of antioxidants that help protect against oxidative stress, which can contribute to inflammation, aging, and diseases like cancer.

Carrots are one of the richest natural sources of vitamin A and beta-carotene, an essential nutrient for eye health, immune function, and much more.

Cinnamon is a good ally in fighting respiratory infections due to its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and expectorant properties.

Each scoop of Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens powder contains 8g of complete protein.

Unsweetened shredded coconut is a healthier choice than sweetened. It often contains fewer preservatives and usually isn’t treated with sulfites to keep it white.

High in vitamin C, cranberries have long been known to the indigenous people of North America for their health benefits. New England sailors consumed them to prevent scurvy, and they’ve been a popular folk remedy for the treatment of bacterial urinary tract infections (UTIs) since the turn of the century. 

Dates are a healthy way to add sweetness to your recipes, along with a variety of nutrients, including iron, potassium, B vitamins, copper, and magnesium.

Hemp seeds are a great source of protein, fiber, vitamins, and essential minerals. They are also a good source of phytosterols, which support immune function.

Pumpkin spice blend – While lots of stores sell pumpkin spice (aka pumpkin pie spice) ready-made, it’s super simple to make your own from spices you may already have on hand. It’s usually made with a combination of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove, and allspice.

Walnuts are neuroprotective and support heart health. They are loaded with antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, manganese, molybdenum, and biotin.


  1. Hi Beth,

    Thanks for your question.

    Dried dates and dried cranberries are high in sugar content. If you're up for an experiment, I would substitute the dried fruits with some kind of nut/seed butter to help bind the energy balls together and add in a low-glycemic sweetener such as stevia.

    Have fun in the kitchen!
