These date and nut energy balls have become my new favourite snack for an afternoon pick-me-up!
You only need 6 simple ingredients and they’re soo easy to make.
If you’re living in Singapore, you can get the dates at The Source Bulk Foods or Mustafa! I like the former as you can buy just the amount you need (I’m a fan of the Medjool dates there!)
Try out different variations with pumpkin seeds, cranberries, dried apricots, dried figs, ginger powder, etc and let me know how you go : )
5 large Medjool dates, pitted
1 tbsp (12g) almond meal
1 tbsp (6g) cocoa powder
1 tbsp (6g) coconut flakes
1 tbsp (44g) nut butter
Pinch of salt
- In a processor, blend all ingredients together until smooth. If it’s not coming together, add 1 tbsp water, or as needed.
- Dampen hands and shape them into balls. You can use a mini ice cream scoop to help with portioning.
- Chill in the fridge, or store in the freezer for a longer shelf life.
- If you can’t take nuts or don’t have any almond flour at home, you may use oat flour. Grind up rolled oats in a food processor till fine
