How to make healthy and yummy pecan balls

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes

Yield: 30 Balls

Serving Size: Bite-sized


  • One and a half cups of dried fruit
  • 1 (180gms) packet of pecans
  • Half a cup of other preferred mixed nuts (we used almonds and walnuts)
  • Quarter cup of honey
  • 1 cup of peanut butter
  • Half a cup of choc chips
  • 2 tbsp of chia seeds
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • Good shake of mixed spice
  • 1 tbsp of mixed spice
  • Water as required.


  1. Add all the ingredients except for the nuts to a food processor. We find it best to add wet and dry ingredients alternately so as to check on the consistency of the mixture as we go
  2. Add the nuts last so as to not reduce them down too far. We like a bit of crunch in the finished balls
  3. Add a tbsp or two of water if needed to ensure the mixture will form into balls
  4. Place a sheet of baking paper on a tray and start to roll mixture into one inch balls and place them on the paper
  5. Once all the ball are rolled, place the tray in the fridge for an hour or two to set (we actually like to leave them longer if we have time as they firm up nicely)
  6. Place the finished balls into an airtight container and keep in the fridge or freezer.


If you want to make these balls even healthier, try adding two tbsp of MACA or protein powder to the mix. Just be sure to allow for it by adding some additional liquid.
