Power Balls

These energy balls make an ideal pick-me-up.

Ingredients (makes around 20)

250g dried figs or dates

200g ground almonds

50g raw cacao powder

25g chia seeds

50g flaked coconut

1 tablespoon coconut oil

A few drops of vanilla essence

Pinch of pink Himalayan salt

Extra coconut flakes for coating


  1. Add all the ingredients to a food processor and process until the mixture comes together into a thick paste. I find figs are more ‘sticky’ than dates.
  2. If the mixture is still too dry, add a teaspoon of coconut oil to bind.
  3. Roll the mixture into small balls and dip into flaked coconut.
  4. Store in a glass jar. These will easily last 7-10 days in a sealed jar.
