Honey, Hazelnut + Almond Power Balls

recipe1We all do different things with our days. Some of us are caught behind office desks, others are sweating it out in front of judges (not in the criminal sort of way!), we are racing bikes in far away places, giving lectures + making nut butter of course!

It’s hard to find the right snack, which isn’t loaded with nasty processed things. Whatever we’re doing that 3 o’clock wall hits us all hard and fast.

So instead of grabbing that chocolate bar of muffin, I’ve been trying to snack on these little balls. Dairy, sugar + gluten free. So ridiculously simple to make + just as easy to devour.

You’ll need a food processor with some determination.

Add to your processor, 1 cup pitted dates + 1 cup raw unsalted almonds, 1/2 cup chia seeds, 1/2 cup flaxseeds, 2 tblsp hazelnut + honey butter.

Blitz, blitz and blitz some more. It will take a while for the dates to break down and the almonds to crumble. Soon you’ll have a fine-ish mixture from which you can shape your balls. Fridge or freeze, then eat + run.
