Peak Sherpa Energy Balls: the Bar Redefined | Bite Sized Energy Snacks in an Innovative Resealable Pouch. Designed and Tested by Mountaineers
During a recent trek to the Himalayas, I wondered, why aren’t there any energy snacks made with Tsampa? My parents are from Tibet and would make Tsampa as a treat – but I wasn’t aware of the great nutrition and long-lasting energy benefit until my trek up to Mt. Everest. I got to work when I returned to Seattle, developing numerous recipes and asking local Sherpa friends and professional mountain guides for feedback. Everything – from flavor, nutrition, packaging, size, and shape – was tested and optimized, creating the ultimate energy snack for your next outdoor adventure. Enjoy!

Why Peak Sherpa Energy Balls?
Peak Sherpa Energy Balls are designed for activity. Mountaineers and climbing guides told us they rarely eat a whole energy bar at one time and prefer to eat in small chunks when they’re physically active. Perfectly portioned energy balls are ideal for fueling on the go. Plus, with 8 energy balls per pack, it’s easy to share with friends and family!
Our packaging is unique, with a resealable peel-back opening – the first of its kind in the US energy bar market. Now you can fuel as you go, eat as much or as little as you need. No more half-eaten energy bars collecting lint in your backpack!
Peak Sherpa Energy Balls are made with Tsampa (pronounced sahm’-pa), a sprouted & roasted high mountain barley. It’s a great source of fiber rich complex carbohydrates, providing long-lasting energy and satiety. For centuries, people across the Himalayas, including Sherpa mountaineers, have relied on Tsampa as their go-to source for long-lasting energy.
By working with Sherpa guides and mountain climbing communities in the Pacific Northwest, we’ve created an energy snack with the ideal balanced nutrition for outdoor adventures. These elite mountain guides wanted the quick energy that typically comes with energy gels, but also something more wholesome, nutritious and long lasting. By combining simple and complex carbohydrates, essential complete proteins, fat, fiber, and electrolytes, Peak Sherpa Energy Balls deliver the ideal snack for these elite endurance athletes… and you!
Made with Organic Ingredients
Our Amala (mother in Tibetan) instilled in us the importance of fueling our bodies with wholesome and healthy foods. So we created Peak Sherpa Energy Balls using all natural, organic ingredients like crunchy Tsampa, egg whites, pea protein, brown rice syrup, almond butter, and Himalayan pink salt – so you can feel good about what you’re eating while enjoying the balanced nutrition and great taste!
Available in 4 Delicious Flavors
Designed & Tested by Mountaineers
The Sherpa and mountaineering communities of the Pacific Northwest were an integral part of our development process. We listened to the needs of top mountain climbers and gave them prototype products to test on the world’s tallest mountains (including Mount Everest!). They gave us feedback on how we could improve and we listened, creating the ultimate long-lasting energy snack for outdoor adventures.
While you may not be climbing Everest daily like a Sherpa mountaineer, you too can benefit from the features of Peak Sherpa Energy Balls to help you Reach Your Peak!
