This is possibly my favourite snack of all time. Having a sweet tooth, if I’m not careful I can find myself craving desserts and biscuits to dunk into tea – this little gem of a recipe keeps the cravings at bay. Originally found in the Deliciously Ella recipe book I’ve kind of adapted as I’ve gone along dependant on the ingredients I have to hand. Feel free to do the same. Word of warning – very moorish, so don’t eat all 10 balls in one day!

No cooking time required, but they’re best when they’ve been refrigerated for a couple of hours before eating.

Note: Not suitable for people with nut allergies.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 x tablespoons of raw cacao
  • 2 x tablespoons of Almond Butter
  • Large handful of chopped pitted dates
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 100-200g of Almonds
  • Desiccated Coconut
  • Chia Seeds optional

Method

  1. Put the Almonds into a powerful blender and blend until flour
  2. Add the chopped pitted dates and blend some more
  3. Then add the Almond Butter, Raw Cacao & Coconut Oil. Blend again until you get a sticky substance. Note you sometimes have to stop and spoon the mixture around before blending again. You want it like soft putty
  4. Transfer mixture to a bowl and roll around 1 large tablespoon in the palm (of a clean!) hand
  5. Roll the ball around to coat in desiccated coconut and place in tupperware for refrigeration
  6. Cool for a couple of hours (if you can wait that long!) before eating

Eating Times
Skinny jeans School BreakfastI sometimes have one at 6am with a banana and coffee as I head out to teach clients, as I find it too hard to sit and eat breakfast at this time. However, these are great as a snack during the day after your workout or as a treat after your meal if you don’t want to feel like you’ve missed out.
