Description

An energising nut free snack which is handy to keep in the fridge to keep the hunger pangs at bay.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 75 g sunflower seeds
  • 250 g pitted dates ((see Note 1))
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 heaped teaspoon coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons cacao nibs

Instructions

  1. Weigh the sunflower seeds into the TM bowl and grind 10 sec/speed 9.
  2. Weigh the dates into the TM bowl making sure there are no stones left in them (see Note 1) and chop 30 sec/speed 7.
  3. Add all the other ingredients except for the cacao nibs and mix 10 sec/speed 5.
  4. Add cacao nibs and mix 3-5 sec/reverse/speed 4.
  5. Shape the mixture into walnut sized balls and refrigerate for half an hour before eating.

Notes

  1. A lot of these types of raw recipes call for Medjool dates, which are larger and more stickier and triple the price.  I find that home brand regular dates work just as well.
  2. If you buy pitted dates, there is a small chance a stone or two is left behind so worth double checking.  This has happened to me before and I almost broke a tooth!
  3. Keep stored in the fridge in an airtight container.
