These tasty energy power balls are a great snack and pick me up.
Full of energy, only eat 2-3 of these as a quick snack during the day.
Eating too many healthy treats can also put you in a calorie surplus which will stop you burning fat so enjoy these sparingly.
1 tbsp Maple syrup
2 tbsp Coconut oil
10g Butter or Cashew butter
100g Cashew nuts
100g Dates or Figs
Sprinkle of Cinnamon
Heat a pan and add coconut oil, when the coconut oil has melted remove from heat.
Add butter, Maple syrup, cinnamon and stir together. ( Add this to the blender later)
Add the Walnuts to a food processor and blend, remove and add them to a plate.
Add the Cashew nuts, Figs and coconut oil mix into a food processor/Nutri bullet and blend until a paste has formed.
Remove the mixture and roll into small balls. You should be able to make 16 - 18.
Roll the balls in the blended Walnuts on a plate.
Store in an airtight container.
These can also be frozen, allow to defrost for 25-30 mins before eating.
