Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Sugar Free, Egg Free Energy Balls
Here is my quick recipe for those times when I need a good hit of energy. Usually when doing a long 10-15 mile walk.
Honesty, my only reason I make them, to take with us on our walks/hikes through the countryside or along the coast.
These balls are gluten free, dairy free, wheat free, egg free.
INGREDIENTS:Makes approximately 22 balls
3/4 cup dessicated coconut
3/4 cup ground almonds (or almond meal)
1 cup dried apricots, chopped
OR 1/2 cup dried apricots 1/2 cup dried cranberries, chopped
1/2 cup dark tahini
1/2 cup honey
1-2 tablespoons cocoa powder
Mix all the dry ingredients well. Then add the wet ingredients, honey and tahini.
Stir through well.
With a tablespoon for measure, roll into balls between the palms of your hands.
Coat with dessicated coconut, and store in air tight containers in fridge.
Sprinkle coconut onto bottom surface of containers before placing balls, and sprinkle a bit more coconut on top.
Warning: High energy balls = high calorie count. Only to be eaten when burning calories.
