By: Rowanna Watson
Energy balls are a great go-to snack for busy people. These irresistible coconut energy balls are really simple to make and can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week, giving that much needed energy boost at any time of the day.
FOR THE ENERGY BALLS
- Medjool dates (pitted) 180g
- Oats 117g
- Avocado (medium) ½
Cacao 6 tbsp
- Coconut milk 2 tbsp
- Cinnamon ½ tsp
- Vanilla extract 1 tsp
- Desiccated coconut 4 tbsp
- Sesame seeds 4tsp
Pour oats into food processor and pulse until powdered oatmeal.
Add the dates and pulse for 30 seconds.
Cut the avocado in half, remove stone and scoop one half into the food processor.
Add the vanilla, cinnamon, half the cacao, and the coconut milk.
Blitz all the ingredients in the food processor until it forms a paste-like dough. (You may need to stop to scrape down the sides a few times.)
Sprinkle the other half of the cacao on to a clean surface.
Using your hands, take small balls of the dough and roll into approx. 2 cm diameter balls. Roll the balls around in the cacao so they have a light dusting.
