These Energy Bites are fantastic to have on hand. Be imaginative, and alter some of the proportions of seeds/nuts to what you have on hand. I tend to make most of mine with the second recipe using dried dates as it is cheaper. These truffles are fantastic for nourishing your skin, hair and nails as they are full of vitamins and minerals.
1 cup each sunflower, pumpkin and Brazil nut (or nut of choice, or swap for extra seeds)
1 cup desiccated coconut
2 tbsp ground linseed
8 medjool dates (pitted)
2 heaped dessert spoons coconut oil
5 tbsp cacao powder
1 tsp vanilla powder (optional)
5-8 tbsp water
Place all seeds and the medjool dates into the processor and blitz to a crumb.
Add in cacao, pulse to blend. Next add in the coconut oil, process until well mixed and mixture coming together.
Add water as required until mixture sticks and can be rolled into balls.
These will keep in the fridge for up to 8 days and the freezer for up to 3 months.
