Raspberry cashew energy bites

DSC02875

Do you ever need some extra energy?  I always find that in winter I need a bit more of a boost and rather than head to the staff vending machine, I prefer to make my own.  These energy balls are ideal because they travel well (my handbag is never without a snack), last for ages in the fridge and keep your energy and blood sugar levels up. And they are super easy to make…

 

Ingredients


1/2 cup SUPERGOODFRUITS freeze dried raspberries

1/2 cup cashews

3 medjool dates

1 tsp vanilla extract

pinch of salt

But feel free to double / triple this recipe as the balls will last at least a week!

Blend the cashews until they are a chunky crumble.  If you prefer, you can swap cashews for almonds, hazelnuts or walnuts.

Then add the dates.  I’d strongly suggest hunting down Medjool dates.  They really are the best – they are bigger, softer and stickier than the dry ‘normal’ dates and will hold your mixture together – plus I think they have a far superior taste.  If you don’t like, or can’t find, dates then replace with dried figs or cranberries.

Pulse the dates and nuts in the blender until a sticky dough is formed.

Then add the vanilla extract and salt, blending a bit to combine.

Lastly add your freeze-dried fruits – I went for the delicious SUPERGOODFRUITS freeze-dried raspberries.

Blend again, but not too much.

Then, using your hands, roll the dough into little balls.

Pop into the fridge and / or eat!

Ideal for eating before a workout or when you have a mid-afternoon slump.  As you can see, they’re easy to make and you can experiment with other ingredients too – such as chia seeds, cocoa powder, coconut…
