“My nutrition team and I have worked hard to create these super nutritious, balanced and flavorful energy balls that give us the perfect boost to get us through the day – enjoy two balls per snack. »

Ingredients:

  • 70 g of pumpkin seeds
  • 20g puffed brown rice or puffed quinoa
  • 50 g whole almonds
  • 80g Medjool dates
  • 1 cm fresh turmeric or ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 heaping teaspoon quality cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ tablespoon manuka honey
  • 1 orange

Method:

  1. Mix 40 g of the pumpkin seeds into a fine powder in a food processor, then decant onto a plate.
  2. Place the rest of the pumpkin seeds and puffed rice or quinoa into the processor with the almonds and dates (shred first), then stir until finely chopped.
  3. Peel and finely grate the turmeric, if using fresh, or add the ground turmeric, along with the cinnamon, cocoa powder, and a pinch of sea salt.
  4. Blitz again until finely ground, then add the vanilla, honey, and half the orange juice.
  5. Blitz for another 1 or 2 minutes, stopping to scrape down the sides a few times and adding an extra splash of orange juice to bind, only if needed; It takes a while for the mixture to come together, so be patient and let the processor do its magic.
  6. With wet hands, divide into 24 and roll into balls, dropping into pumpkin seed powder as you go.
  7. Shake to coat, storing in excess powder until needed. They will stay happy for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container.

Tips:

Medjool dates have the double benefit of being rich in fiber and chloride, a nutrient that aids our digestion, and we get a hint of copper from pumpkin seeds.
