Blogmas: Coconut Energy Balls

Blogmas: Coconut Energy Balls

Last week, I was occupied with so many things that I didn‘t even have a chance to cook or bake anything. This week I decided to really make an effort and use my kitchen more so I spent the whole Sunday making delicious food. One of my all times favourite snack is energy balls. The main ingredients provide a heathy balance of fats, proteins and carbs, plus provide a punch of nutrients- exactly what you need to get you through a long day. This recipe is from Niomi Smart book “Eat Smart”. Enjoy!

Ingredients

2 tbsp. coconut oil

90g desiccated coconut

1 tbsp. lemon zest

80g unsalted raw brazil nuts

1 tsp vanilla powder or 1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract

2 tbsp. maple syrup

3 tbsp. lemon juice

Method

  1. Set aside the coconut oil, 3-4 tablespoons of the desiccated coconut and the lemon zest. Blend the remaining ingredients in a food processor until combined. Add the oil and pulse until combined.
  2. Roll into bite-size balls and place in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle the 2-4 tablespoons of desiccated coconut and the lemon zest onto a plate and roll the balls on the plate until fully covered.
