These raw energy balls have been my go to snack for the last couple of months and are so easy to make. They are the perfect pregnancy snack packed with delicious natural goodness not to mention great for the whole family. I personally like them straight out of the fridge and they keep for at least a week in sealed container.
2 cups nuts – any nuts will do. I generally use a combination of walnuts, cashews, almond meal, flaxseeds and chia seeds.
1 cup desiccated coconut
2 cups Medjool dates
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt
2 tbls coconut oil
In a food processor, process the nuts with the coconut. Add the dates, vanilla, coconut oil and salt. Process until combined. Place the mixture in the fridge for about 10mins before rolling individually into balls. Coat in chia seeds and coconut and store in the fridge.
Makes about 25.
