CASHEW, COCONUT & RASPBERRY ENERGY BALLS

The perfect snack to pack up and take with you for a day in the library if like me you are studying over summer (you’ve got this!), or to put in a jar to take to work, or just devour in one sitting whilst binge watching a series!
These will keep you going through that mid-afternoon slump; filled with fibre rich oats & dates and a burst of protein, iron & monounsaturated fats from the cashews

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • 6 pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup / 1 handful frozen raspberries
  • 1 heaped tsp of cashew butter

METHOD:

  1. Cover the dates & cashews with warm water and leave for at least 10 minutes to soften
  2. Blend up the oats into a fine flour. Put to the side.
  3. Drain the cashews & dates
  4. Blend together the cashews, dates, coconut flakes and frozen raspberries
  5. In a bowl mix together the oat flour and blended mixture (you may have to get your hands messy for this bit!)
  6. Stir in the cashew butter
  7. Take a heaped tsp of the mix and form balls
  8. Decorate as you wish
  9. Chill in the fridge
