Would you like a recipe for some super balls to keep you and the little ones bouncing?
I love this recipe that I have adapted from www.sugarfreekids.com. These nutrient dense balls are a yummy snack for all and sundry. I like to roll them into quite small balls so I can eat even more, but make them whichever size you want!
I have also varied them by replacing the sesame seeds with goji berries for example. Or; if you are not a fan of maca, replace it with some other powder such as wheatgrass or spirulina, (but the colour is not as appealing).
The recipe is pretty versatile just as long as you use fresh dates. If you use dry dates, soak them in a cup of flitered water for a few hours in order to soften.
For a nut-free version, replace the almond meal and almonds with ½ a cup of seeds (sunflower, pumpkin or hemp all work well)!
- Dates – 1/2 cup (Preferably Medjool or fresh dates)
- Desiccated Coconut – 1/2 cup
- Oats – 1/2 cup (organic rolled oats are tastier and have better texture)
- Almonds (crushed)- 1/4 cup
- Almond meal 1/4 cup
- Butter or coconut – 3 Tablespoons 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds
- 1 tablespoon of maca
- 2 tablespoons of raw cacao powder
- Process all ingredients in a food processor until a crumb like texture
- Add cold butter or coconut oil and process further to combine
- The dough will hold its shape when formed together
- Simply roll into small balls and refrigerate.
Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to a week.
