Energy balls are a great snack if you need some energy. Dates provide you with necessary carbohydrates, seeds & nuts with some healthy fats. They are also packed with vitamins and minerals.
INGREDIENTS (PORTION FOR 30 BALLS)
100g honey/maple syrup
10g chia seeds & 10g linseeds (or 20g from one of them)
Add 225g dates in a food processor and blend roughly
add 100g honey, 10g chia seeds, 10g linseeds and half of the oats (60g) to it and blend briefly. You should get a smooth mass out of it
Add the mass into a big bowl
Mix the rest of the oats, 100g pistachios, pinch of salt and 100g cranberries to the mass
chill for 30 minutes in the fridge (if you store it longer, that is not a problem)
shape mixture into 30 balls. I would recommend to weigh the whole mass and divide it through 30 so you have a rough feeling how much one of the energy balls should weigh.
Roll them in shredded coconut or sesame
