Aromatic nut free energy balls
We don’t know about you, but we get a bit bored of store bought chocolate-y and super sweet energy balls. Plus, the store-bought ones don’t tend to be an option for nut allergy sufferers – so this one is especially for those with allergies.
These balls are subtly aromatic and are perfect for munching alongside your morning coffee, pulling out of your pocket mid bike ride and fuelling up before a run. Depending on how small you roll them, you can expect to get around 18 balls out of this mixture – nutrient dense, delicious AND money saving!
1 cup pitted dates
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
10 drops lemon oil
1tbsp maple syrup
1tbsp baobab powder
- Whizz together the seeds and dates in a food processor until well blitzed.
- Add baobab powder, maple syrup and lemon oil and pulse until well combined.
- Scoop out small amounts of the mixture and form into balls.
- Store in a sealed container in the fridge (or freezer) so you have a snack on hand whenever you need it.
