These ‘raw energy balls’ are a great healthy alternative to chocolates and biscuits, when the body gets that sugar craving, or you are on the go and need a little ‘something healthy’ to tide you over until your next meal. These are also a great treat pre or post your gym workout, especially by adding some protein powder to enhance the nutritionally value to this power balls!
Makes between 10-16 balls depending on size
1 cup walnuts/cashews
1 cup pitted dates
2 tbsp lemon juice
Sprinkling of cinnamon, nutmeg, himalayan salt
- In a food processor blend the walnuts
- Add all the other until the mixture has come together
- Empty into a bowl and start to roll into balls (to the size you like). I would use gloves to do this as it will give you a better round shape with sticking to your fingers.
Leave plain or you can roll in desiccated coconut or sesame seeds.
– Chocolate: add 1 tbsp raw cacao powder
