Yes I know what your thinking, they don’t look like the most appealing things in the world. But don’t let that fool you they rule and are well tasty, my kids even eat them. They are my called my comp balls because I make them for my Brazillian Jiu Jitsu comps or training seminars where I don’t want to eat much but keep my energy levels up. I would not eat these all the time because they are very good for you full of nutrients, omega 3’s and loads of other great stuff but they a very calorific, perfect if you are having a very active day. There are a few diffent ways you can make them so don’t worry if you don’t have all the ingredients but the constancy is important and need to make sure it’s not to wet, dry or sticky. You will need a food processor, I find the little ones are best.
What you need
- Whole pitted dates and/or prunes (handful)
- Coconut oil (large tablespoon)
- grated coconut (large table spoon)
- hemp seeds (large table spoon)
- ground almonds (2x large table spoon)
- peanut butter (large table spoon)
- Flax or linseed whole (tea spoon)
- honey (tea spoon)
- Molasses (tea spoon),
How to do it
- Melt the coconut oil, honey & molasses in a small pan until melted.
- Blitz everything else (apart from grated coconut) in food processor and then add the cooled melted c/nut oil, honey & Molasses.
- Blitz it all again and to test if it is the constancy is right roll a small amount into a ball in you hands. If too brittle then needs bit more coconut oil. Then when consistency is right roll over grated coconut. Yum!!!!
