After a very long search on Google for the perfect recipe for energy bites I came across many different variations – some that you had to bake, some with a thousand different ingredients, and some which looked like I’d rather chew on cardboard.

After posting my not so naughty treats on social media I’ve had a few requests for the recipe. Although I never did find the ideal recipe that I was hoping for… With a bit of inspiration from a mixture of recipes and after a few experiments in the kitchen I created my own.

These are a winner! Even if I do say so myself *insert sassy emoji*.

So, if you’re in need of a healthy snack, and have a sweet tooth like I do, then this recipe is for you!

TIP: For the blender, if you have a nutribullet I would suggest NOT using that. The mixture gets very sticky, the first time I attempted it with the nutribullet I blew the fuse – oops!

Ingredients:

1 cup raw seeds (I use 30g sunflower seeds 80g pumpkin seeds)
30g cocoa powder
1tsb vanilla extract
pinch of salt
100g dates (chopped into half or quarter)
2 or 3tbsp water
shredded coconut (or whatever you want) to cover and decorate them

Method:

1. Add the seeds and salt to the blender and mix

2. Add the cocoa powder and vanilla extract to the mixture and blend together

3. Add the dates a few at a time, blending in between and adding the water 1tbsp at a time as needed until all the mixture has come together.

4. Spoon the mixture out a little at a time rolling it into bite-sized balls.

5. Then roll the mixture in your chosen toppings. I use cacao powder/ shredded coconut/ shaved almonds and my ultimate favourite – edible glitter (although not the healthiest option!)

Put them in the fridge to chill, then enjoy!
