These Cranberry & Pomegranate Energy Balls are one of my favorite snacks to grab before I head off to the gym.  You probably saw this shot just before I ran out the door.  The reason I love these is largely because I am a sucker for dried cranberries.  Actually, that’s really not true.  I’m a sucker for cranberries in general as you can see from this list of recipes that include cranberries.

Cranberry Energy Balls

Our different recipes for Energy Balls are favorites of my girls as well.  They fit perfectly in their hands and the different flavor combinations like our Caramel Apple Cinnamon or Pumpkin Pie are huge hits.  We needed one a bit more perfect for Winter though.  I have a tendency to eat a ton of cranberries and pomegranates during the winter so these were a perfect flavor combination.  If you really want to know where the inspiration came from then you want to check out my Christmas Sangria.  Yummers!

Cranberry & Pomegranate Energy Balls

Cranberry & Pomegranate Energy Balls make the perfect healthy snack.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Servings 12


  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 pomegranate


  1. Clean the pomegranate seeds from half of a pomegranate. Making sure to remove the pith {the inside white part that sticks to the seeds} You can do this by placing the seeds in a bowl and filling it with water. The pith will rise to the top.

  2. Add the dried cranberries, oats, flax seeds, almonds and honey to a food processor and process until it looks like a paste and a ball can be formed. If it is not paste like enough add in another 1/4 cup of cranberries and a tablespoon of honey.

  3. In order to create the balls with the pomegranate added, you'll need to make sure the pomegranates are dried off from being cleaned and then add them to the paste mixture.

  4. Squeeze the pomegranates into the balls and make tablespoon size balls.

  • Kelly

    I have had to add alot of extra cranberries and honey but still have trouble getting these to make balls. The pomegranate seeds won’t stay in them either. I really wanted to love this recipe, however instead I will be removing from my pinterest.

    • staci

      i also added more honey and cranberries still not pasty. i just wonder if there was something different i could have done. If there is someone please tell me! i like the idea of this recipe and want this to work, but so far no good.
