These are so delicious, you'd never guess they were so good for you! Proof that it's always possible to eat flavoursome AND nutritious foods - you just need the right recipes :).
I've paired the natural sweetness from the dates with healthy protein and fats from the walnuts and almond butter to make sure this is a sweet treat that keeps your blood sugar, and energy levels, stable.
Make a big batch of these and store in the freezer for easy to grab snacks.
Makes 10-12 balls
2 tbs cacao powder
Zest of 2 oranges or 2tsp orange extract
40g smooth peanut or almond butter
Method for Chocolate Orange Energy Balls
Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and process until well combined, it should be very sticky.
Take 1 tbs of mixture and roll into a ball. Repeat until the mixture is used up.
Keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or freezer for up to 2 months.
I think they are best eaten straight from the freezer!
