Much more than a snack ! You can freeze these or store in an airtight container for 3-4 days (if they last that long) So many varieties to make and a great one for kids to make! MAKES 9 medium balls – These are a protein filler so 1 medium = 1 portion. I freeze mine and keep them for weekends when im out walking , going on trips etc – great with a coffee or tea!


  • 200g Mixed Nuts (Unsalted and Unroasted)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • Seasalt
  • 2 x squares Lindt Dark Choc chopped roughly (70% plus)
  • 1 tsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp crunchy peanut / almond butter
  • Optional: 2 tbsp desiccated coconut for rolling (if you are trying to cut calories leave out the desiccated coconut)



  • Blitz the nuts in a blender. If you don’t have a blender then place in a sandwich bag and bash with a rolling pin to make into small pieces.
  • Add to a bowl with all the remaining ingredients. You can vary the seasalt depending on if you like the salty / chocolatey flavour!
  • Roll the mixture into balls (I made 9 with this mix)
  • Roll in the desiccated coconut if using
  • Place the balls to chill in the fridge for at least 20 minutes before serving. (if you can wait that long!)
  • The balls can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days or you can freeze them if you wish to keep for weekend treats
