No-cook cocoa, nut and date energy bites
First of my occasional recipes!
These are seriously quick to make, about 5 minutes from start to finish. I took the Deliciously Ella Ultimate Energy Bites recipe, and tweaked it because let's face it, who has coconut oil in the store cupboard? Ditto hemp powder...
You will need a food processor.
Makes between 10 - 20 balls, depending on how big you like them..
– 1 cup of dates, stoned
– 3/4 of a cup of almonds
– 3/4 of a desiccated coconut or walnut or any other nut
– 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
– 1 tablespoon of sunflower oil
– 1 tablespoon of raw cacao powder
Approx 1 tablespoon of runny honey
Start by placing the almonds, walnuts and chia seeds in your food processor. Blend for 1 minute, until a flour forms and the nuts have crumbled.
Then add the remaining ingredients. Blend for another minute until a sticky dough forms.
Use your hands to roll the mixture into little balls, adding more honey if they are a little crumbly, and place each in a miniature cupcake holder if you have them.
Store in the fridge for two weeks.
It goes without saying, but I will anyway, these aren't suitable for nut allergy sufferers...
