So I’m going through a phase at the moment. I’ve not been too well, and I’m overhauling my diet. I’m trying to stick to a plant based diet as much as possible, which sounds easy apart from sorting out the sweet cravings. I’ve seen so many blog posts on ‘energy balls’ so I attempted my own version . I think they taste amazing, you only need one to satisfy a sweet craving and they are so simple to make…
100g desiccated coconut
400g raisins or dates
4tbsp raw cacao powder
2tbsp coconut oil
Easy! Put all of the ingredients into a food processor and blend until you have a thick mixture. If the mixture seems dry and a bit flakey, add a little bit more water until the mixture is combined fully.
Take a teaspoon of mixture and roll it into a ball. Don’t worry if the mixture seems wet, they will be fine once they cool. The balls should be able to hold their shape- Put them in the fridge for a couple of hours to ‘harden up’.
This amount of mixture should make between 16-20 balls and they will last for a week or so in the fridge.
