When it comes to energy balls I really think the flavour combination are endless! This salted caramel version has been my latest obsession as I love the contrast between the sweetness of the dates, the sea salt and the biscuity flavour of the maca powder. I love making a big batch on a Sunday so I have got plenty of snack ready for the week ahead.
Makes about 10-12 balls
100gr of almonds
1 tbsp of almond butter
About 12-14 medjol dates
1/2 teaspoon of maca powder ( it will give them a nice biscuity flavour)
A pinch of sea salt
Optional: If you want to make this energy balls even more decadent you can drizzle them with some melted dark chocolate – about 40gr
This recipe really couldn’t be simpler. Just place all the ingredients into your food processor and blitz for 1 minute or so until the almond turn into coarse flour and you have a sticky mixture when pressed between your fingers. If you find the mixture too dry add another couple of dates.
Roll the mixture into balls and place them in the fridge to set for about 1 hour.
Once set drizzle them with some melted dark chocolate and let them set for another 30 minutes until the chocolate is solid. Enjoy!
You can either store them in the fridge of freezer and they are perfectly fine to eat for few weeks in the fridge of few months in the freezer.
