Its January and I am in need of a sweet treat on this frosty cold day.
I have made a small batch of energy balls…..sweet, delicious, simple to make, and full of protein. Vegan.
I used the grinding attachment of my Oscar Vitalmax juicer, (an old but trusty model) to grind up 1 cup of organic almonds. Then I added 20 glorious Persian dates, stones out and put through the machine. To this I added 5 dessertspoons of Organic raw cacao ( powdered). Combine these ingredients into a fairly stiff dough.
Some have just been rolled into balls and rolled in dessicated coconut, to some I have added a little ground ginger, and to others I have added peanut butter.
Chill in the freezer and then they can be kept in the fridge. They won’t last long…..because they are delicious!
