Raw Chocolate Energy Balls!

Raw Chocolate Energy Balls!

Cacao, cashew and seed energy balls…

These are a fantastic snack when you feel like something sweet, need an energy boost or great as a pud. Be aware the cacao can be quite a “pick-u-up” so I wouldn’t have these too close to bed time!
 

½ cup of cashews and ½ cup mixed seeds.

2 tblspns agave or honey

1 tspn vanilla extract

5 dates (or to your taste)

2 tblspns organic cacao (find in health food shops or online)

 

Whizz the cashews and seeds until fine, add the rest of ingredients and whizz until they are a thick paste. Roll into balls. Devour! Remember that nothing is rigid with this healthy eating malarky so if you have walnuts and not cashews or if you have no mixed seeds just go with the flow and experiment. You can also use normal cocoa such as Green and Blacks if you can’t get hold of the raw cacao. It won’t have as many health benefits but still yummy and pretty good for you. :-)
