Wild blueberries are one of my favorite berries. I love them for their unique flavor and amazing health benefits.  These Wild Blueberry Lemon Lavender Energy Balls are the perfect way to reap the health benefits of this nutrient-rich berry!

Koyah Wild Blueberry Lemon Lavender Energy Ball


Did you know that wild blueberries pack twice the antioxidants of “tame” blueberries and they’re chock full of anthocyanins that protect your cardiovascular health? Not only that, they support eye and brain health, too.

These tasty no-bake bites have so much good stuff in them. They’re the perfect grab + go for busy mornings or an afternoon pick-me-up. They’re also gorgeous in person. The purple color is beautiful, thanks mostly to the Koyah Wild Blueberry powder hidden inside.

If you’ve been following me for a minute or two, you know I love love love me some no-bake energy balls! I’ve created so many energy bite recipes, I’ve lost count. They’re such a fun formula recipe and you can experiment with so many awesome flavors. Swap walnuts for macadamia nuts – get a totally different take. Switch out cherries for cranberries – go from tart to sweet. The possibilities are endless!

Another bonus? Everything in these flavorful balls is good for you. At least the way I make them.

What’s Inside These Wild Blueberry Lemon Lavender Energy Balls?

  • Raw nuts are best for energy balls (skip the dry or oil roasted) and a great source of omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin E
  • Rolled oats provide heart healthy fiber and a steady energy source
  • Koyah Wild Blueberry powder for gorgeous color plus the antioxidant power of 120 Wild Blueberries
  • Medjool dates for fiber, natural sweetness and a phytonutrient boost
  • Lemon zest and lemon juice are packed with vitamin C and antioxidants
  • Dried lavender is a calming herb that helps reduce stress

Equipment Note: You’re going to need a food processor to make this recipe (don’t try making it in your blender, it doesn’t work)


Why Freeze-Dried Blueberries?

Freeze dried vs dried blueberries? Yes, this matters. In many energy ball recipes, you’ll find dates as the base along with some type of dried fruit. I always go with freeze-dried blueberries whenever possible because freeze-dried fruit has no added sugar. Dried fruit typically has added sugar, corn syrup and sometimes oil. Trust me, these bad boys are plenty sweet all on their own.

Why I Love Koyah Organic

Koyah uses fresh, whole organic fruits and vegetables that are frozen and freeze-dried. Nothing else is added. Many powders have fillers and artificial colors added to them. Koyah doesn’t add anything. The Wild Blueberry powder has the antioxidant poweder of 60 Wild Blueberries in just one scoop – amazing! Koyah powders are a great addition to smoothies, soups, baked goods, chia pudding, sauces – even mac and cheese! Pretty much anything you can think of for an easy nutrient boost.

Wild Blueberry Benefits

Wild blueberries are so diverse. They range in flavor from tart to sweet. They’re grown wild in Maine. They’re picked at the height of freshness instead of harvested when they are near ripe and then shipped. Wild blueberries have amazing health benefits that you might not have known about (until now.)

For starters, they have twice the antioxidants of ordinary blueberries. That means you get two times more protection against free radicals! I call that a win right there. They’re small so you get even more good stuff per cup of wild blueberries over ordinary blueberries. They also have 72% more fiber than ordinary blueberries.

Wild blueberries have also been linked to brain health. Research shows healthy diets that include wild blueberries have been linked to improved memory and overall brain health. They may even help to fight cognitive decline.

The purple-blue anthocyanins found in wild blueberries protect the cardiovascular system, reducing blood pressure and reducing the risk of clogged blood vessels. They also give them their gorgeous color! The anthocyanins have also been shown to improve vision recovery after exposure to bright light.
