California Prune Energy Balls

 

You will need a blender for this recipe.

(Note on measurements: the easiest way to make these is to measure the ingredients out in a cup or other container, and then simply keep the proportions as stated below. We used a standard American “cup” – which holds about 250ml of liquid).

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup ready-to-eat California Prunes
  • ¼ cup Chia seeds
  • 1/8 cup cocoa powder)
  • 1/8 cup smooth nut butter
  • . coconut oil, to blend

DIRECTIONS

Place the nuts in the food processor and blitz for a moment.

Add the other ingredients, save for the coconut oil and desiccated coconut, and blend well, until smooth.

Add a small amount of coconut oil, a few drops at a time, until the mixture is sticky, and holds its shape when you roll a small amount between your fingers.

Take a tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a ball, and continue until all the mixture is used.

Place a handful of desiccated coconut onto a plate and roll the balls in it, to coat, if using.

If you’re in a cold climate, they set right away but a tip is to place in the freezer for about 45 minutes to set, and then store in an air-tight container in the fridge. They will keep for up to a week.
