There’s something about mid morning which makes me crave my cacao and coconut energy balls. It must be the fact that I can’t wait for lunchtime or maybe that they are too difficult to resist. Sometimes when I am dreaming of devouring one I go to the cookie jar and realise someone has beaten me to the last one! So my new plan is to make double and hide the rest in a secret location where no one knows except ME……
These energy balls are rich, moist and almost taste like a truffle. Except you know they are full of goodness with raw cacao, organic dates, nuts and desiccated coconut. I have made these numerous times but now I have got the recipe down to a tee. If you like anything chocolate then you will love these!
The ingredients speak for themselves. Pecans are high in antioxidants and are known to lower cholesterol. Almonds contain nutrients that help maintain a healthy heart and lower the risk of diabetes. Dates are high in fibre, aid digestion and give you that energy boost you sometimes desperately need.
They are simple to make and only take minutes in a food processor, so you know you can reach for one any time of the day!
