The Naked Blondie Date & Walnut Energy Ballz

tnb ballz

I love me a good energy ball, and to be honest in the last couple of weeks I had a fabulous epiphany – ‘Realisation’ that hey I CAN actually create and make my own! I do it for so many other things why not make a little ball of goodness that’s going to fuel my body – is actually good for me and tear at the purse strings. They are also only 5 ingredients in this recipe, low cal and wont break the Syn bank if like me you follow a specific weight loss plan.

Makes 20 Energy Ballz

Ingredients

  • 160g of dates pitted and chopped
  • 40g of walnuts
  • 35g of oats
  • 60g of peanut butter or any nut butter you prefer. If you do not like nut butter use 2 tbsp of coconut oil.
  • 14g of raisins

Additional ingredients

  • 20g of toasted oats
  • 1 square of dark chocolate

Method

  1. For this recipe I used a hand blender, its not ideal but it worked. I would suggest if your making them long term invest in a food processor.
  2. Add all the measured ingredients to a bowl or food processor and blitz until you have a smooth consistency. Place in the fridge for 30 to 40 minutes to let the mix set up before you begin to roll into little balls.
  3. When all the balls are rolled you can leave them in their natural state or roll them in toasted oats, grated chocolate or raw cacao nibs.
  4. Leave to set in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours or as long as you can wait!

Enjoy!
