I love energy balls as they are so easy to make and are full of good-for-you ingredients. I make up lots and keep them in the freezer ready for when I’m heading out or need a snack. They defrost really quickly. If the dates you have are dried and quite hard, soak them in some boiling water for 30 minutes to soften them.
1 Cut the dates into small pieces and place in a food processor with the remaining ingredients. Pulse then blend until the mixture starts to stick together.
2 Roll the mixture into balls the size of a walnut and place them on a baking tray. Allow the balls to dry out a little before placing them in an airtight container. Keep in the fridge for 4-5 days or freeze.
