Almond and date energy balls
Updated: Mar 25
These bite-sized balls are an affordable alternative to packaged chocolate or snacks, especially for those who need their sweet fix. They contain no oils or processed sugar and the sweetness comes from the dried dates. Enjoy with fresh fruit or vegetables to make a complete snack to keep you full. I enjoy them with a matcha-latte or smoothie at the 3pm slump, or first thing in the morning, when I need that pick-me-up to get me going pre-workout.
What I love about this recipe is you can swap out the almonds for any other nuts you prefer. You can use hazelnuts to bring out the chocolate flavour, or use raw cashews for a bit of extra healthy fat!
