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
- 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.
- If the mixture is still too dry, add a teaspoon of coconut oil to bind.
- Roll the mixture into small balls and dip into flaked coconut.
- Store in a glass jar. These will easily last 7-10 days in a sealed jar.
