Energy Balls

Classic energy balls

May 16, 2017 | Snacks & Dips | 0 comments

Energy balls are pretty much the perfect snack as they offer a satiating combination of protein, carbs, and fats. Plus, they’re totally customisable and portable. There are many, many different combinations of energy balls out there so it’s really a question of finding one that’s right for you! For example, if you’re after a more seasonal snack, why not try my chocolatey energy balls, with chickpeas, figs and almonds? Alternatively, a particularly breakfast-suited recipe could be my cranberry, almond and oat ones! As is often the case, however, nothing really beats a classic. I pair one or two with a piece of fruit before or after a workout to save myself the long list of ingredients in store-bought bars and bites.

Ingredients:

  • 200g almonds
  • 400g medjool dates
  • 4 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 2 ½ tbsp almond butter
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

For Toppings use cacao, coconut, linseeds or anything else you fancy.

Method:

  1.  Begin by placing the almonds in the food processor and pulsing until they are nicely crushed.
  2. Add the medjool dates and coconut oil and pulse until it’s fully mixed.
  3. Add the almond butter and cacao and then mix again in the food processor.
  4. Take a tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a ball. Continue doing this until the mixture has finished. Then coat the balls in a topping of your choice.
  5. Place the rolled balls into the freezer for around 1 hour, then remove and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
