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
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
