My favourite, just a few minutes and a few ingredients and presto: a healthy snack is ready to go. I use these as the perfectly-sized pre-workout snack before early morning training sessions. I usually don’t have much of an appetite at 6am, but I still want a bit of energy for the gym. These cashew coconut balls do the trick. Plus, they’re delicious, are oil-free, have no added sugar and are ready in about 5 minutes.
This is hardly a recipe and I know I’ve posted many similar snacks, but they’re just so easy and yummy why not share! I’ve also used coconut oil and maple syrup in a lot of recent snack recipes, so I decided to keep this one very, very basic and keep it oil and added-sweetener free. Just dates, nuts and coconut, that is it. You can add a pinch of sea salt to bring out the flavours, but that’s totally optional. Mix, roll, EAT.
- 1 cup packed, soft pitted dates
- ¾ cup raw cashews
- ½ cup unsweetened fine coconut
- ⅛ tsp sea salt (optional)
- Blend all ingredients until it forms a dough.
- Roll into balls and store in the fridge.
- Makes 10 balls.
