Energy balls addict
I LOVE energy balls. If you have a sweet tooth and are trying to curb the sweet counter in your local supermarket then make yourself a batch of these!
I have made a few varieties and these ones were delicious. I basically got out all the dried fruit and nuts that I had in my cupboard and whizzed them together, coated half in cocoa and half in desiccated coconut.
I chopped up:-
A small bag of dates
hanful of apricots
A small bag of cranberries
A small bag of brazil nuts
1 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp coconut oil
I put all of the ingredients into the blender and whizzed until all of the nuts and berries were coated. The ingredients should be like a fudge. Using a teaspoon I dived in, one scoop makes the perfect size for your ball. I then rolled it using my hands, covered it in cocoa and put it on the plate. I used half coconut half cocoa but you can use anything you like, even more nuts!
Once I had used up all of my mixture and all the balls were made and covered I placed them in the fridge to set.
Florence absolutely adores them and recently I replaced the tahini for peanut butter and they were a real winner! She even likes making them with me which is a really fun activity for a toddler.
They are perfect for out and about and will impress your friends and family. They are so easy to make yet taste amazing!
Use literally any nuts or dried fruit and see what you end up with.
