Yummy sweet treat alert! The Specially For You energy balls can be used using all three Specially For You flavors. For this recipe we used the Chocolate and coconut flavor. These energy balls are perfect to have as a mid-day pick me up at your desk or when you are craving something sweet. Serves 12
- 1 sachet or scoop of Specially For You Chocolate & Coconut
- 8 pitted dates, Medjool if possible
- 100g ground almonds
- 2 tbsp flaxseeds
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
- 2 tbsp cacao nibs
- 4 tbsp unsweetened desiccated coconut
Bring a kettle of water to the boil and then pour enough water over the dates to fully immerse them. Leave to sit and soften for 5 minutes.
When the dates have softened after 5-minutes, thoroughly drain them in a sieve and blitz in a small food processor with 2 tablespoons of warm water (use the soaking water if you like). Tip the puréed dates into a bowl and pour in the remaining ingredients, apart from the coconut.
Mix the ingredients until they become a stiff gloop. Using wet hands, roll the mixture into 12 golf ball-sized rounds. Finally, roll the balls in the desiccated coconut to coat them.
