This is possibly my favourite snack of all times. Having a sweat tooth, if I’m not careful I can find myself craving deserts and biscuits to dunk into Tea – this little gem of a recipe keeps the cravings at bay. Originally found in the Deliciously Ella recipe book I’ve kind of adapted as I’ve gone along dependant on the ingredients I have to hand. Feel free to do the same. Word of warning – very moorish, so don’t eat all 10 balls in one day!
No cooking time required, but they’re best when they’ve been refrigerated for a couple of hours before eating.
Ingredients (I always ‘thereabouts’ ingredients)
2 x tablespoons of raw cacao
2 x tablespoons of Almond Butter
Large handful of chopped pitted dates
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
100-200g of Almonds
Chia Seeds optional
I sometimes have one at 6am with a banana and coffee as I head out to teach clients, as I find it too hard to sit and eat breakfast at this time. However, these are great as a snack during the day after your workout or as a treat after your meal if you don’t want to feel like you’ve missed out.
