Temps de lecture 1 minute

Do you ever run out of energy right before a workout? Does your energy level ever drop in the middle of a workout?

To avoid these situations, eat energy balls before hitting the gym! When planning to train in the next hour, your body needs carbohydrates and a limited amount of proteins and fat in order to feel energized and avoid gastrointestinal disconforts. More specifically, it is recommended to eat 30g to 45g of carbohydrates 1 hour before your workout or 15g to 30g of carbohydrates 30 minutes before your workout.

Preparation: 5 minutes

Number of portions: 10 energy balls

1 hour before working out: 2 to 3 balls

30 minutes before working out: 1 to 2 balls


1 cup (80g), apple rings, dried

1 cup (100g), dates, pitted

1/3 cup of oats

1 tbsp. of honey

1 tsp. of cinnamon

1/4 tsp. of nutmeg


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a food processor
  2. Divide mixture into 10 energy balls
  3. Refrigerate before eating

Nutritional values per energy ball: 67 calories, 17g carbohydrate, 1.5g fiber, 0.5g protein, 0g fat
