I’ve had quite a few requests for some more recipes that use everyday ingredients in a healthy way. These energy balls are inspired by Anne’s energy bites. They use ingredients that you should have in your cupboards, you could swap in some of your favourite dried fruits and nuts for whatever you have on hand!
Sultana Energy Balls
100g oats (I used Rude Health 5 grain 5 seeds porridge oats)
15g flaxseeds (optional)
1tbsp cacao (regular cocoa powder also works!)
3tbsp peanut butter
Blitz all the ingredients together in a food processor until very finely chopped. Press mixture together into balls, it looks dry but it does come together if you really squeeze. It’s easier to press them than rolling them. You should make about 20 balls. I freeze mine to ensure they last a little longer, and become a little more solid for transporting but you can keep them in a ziplock or in the fridge!
These are so delicious, full of fibre and energy. Feel free to use a slightly more virtuous peanut butter than the one I used (trying to use up multiple tubs in my cupboard at the moment so using what I have on hand!) These are brilliant to eat on the go, as a mid morning/afternoon snack or sweet treat- although they might not be the best run fuel due to the high fibre content!
