This Maple Pecan Energy Balls recipe features a new product that is available from Justin’s. I used the Maple Cashew Butter to create these addictive little snack balls. This is a simple and easy-to-do no-bake recipe and anyone could create this! This maple pecan energy balls recipe is also gluten-free, and vegan… woohoo!
If you can’t locate this maple flavored cashew butter you can still use the nut butter of your choice. You will still be getting the maple pecan flavor from the maple syrup and pecans, it is just that this particular maple-flavored cashew butter will give you a burst of added flavor.
Maple Pecan Energy Balls ingredients
This maple pecan energy balls recipe does not require too many ingredients, as a matter of fact, you will only need 6 ingredients to make your very own snack balls. You will need some gluten-free oats, nut butter, pecans, maple syrup, pitted Medjool dates, and coconut oil (not pictured).
Justin’s Maple Cashew Nut Butter Nutrition Facts

This serving size has 200 calories, 15 grams of fat, 11 grams of carbs, 1 gram of fiber, 5 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein. These energy balls use 1/3 of a cup of cashew butter.

Bet You Can’t Eat Just One – Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Energy Balls
Not too long ago I posted a recipe on my blog for oatmeal chocolate chip energy balls that I created with Justin’s Cashew Butter. That recipe is also gluten-free. It is not vegan as written but I do believe you could always swap out the honey in that recipe and use some pure maple syrup instead. I used Justin’s Cashew Butter (plain) to create this oatmeal chocolate chip balls.
