A few weeks ago, I realised I was stuck in an energy ball rut. The ultimate first world healthy food blogger crisis if you will. I’ve just been so busy with everything that when it comes to making snacks for myself and Mr H to have during the week I’ve been relying on the same old flavours over and over and to be honest with you I was getting a little bored. Add to that the fact that baby H has now decided she loves energy balls too (but not near bedtime, big mistake made there which will not be repeated) so I thought it would be good to make a flavour sans cacao (because of the caffeine which when added to babies does not an early bedtime make) and with lots of super duper ingredients.
We all know peanut butter and jam (aka PB&J) but I wanted to create an almondy version, and pair it with acai instead of your standard strawberry/raspberry combo for something a little bit special. Which is exactly what these guys are. They’re SO easy to make, really good for you and above all, delightfully tasty. Whats not to like?
- 1 cup medjool dates
- 1/2 cup almond butter
- 1/2 cup almonds
- 1 tbsp acai powder
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- A pinch of Himalayan salt
- Optional: goji berries to decorate
Simply pop the ingredients in a food processor and whizz up until they form a sticky mixture. Roll into balls and pop in the fridge or freezer!
Love, Mrs H xx
