Coconut Rich Energy Balls

Coconut Energy Balls (2)

Here’s another energy ball recipe, adapted from Deliciously Ella’s grand recipe. I had lots of desiccated coconut left over from when I made these lovely little treats, and I fancied a bigger hit of coconut in each bite anyway, so I just added lots more to the mix.

They’re SUPREME for keeping you going between meals – and I’ve been enjoying them as a post-swim snack too. Rock on.

Coconut Rich Energy Balls
(makes around 25)

150g desiccated coconut (plus extra for rolling the balls in once finished)
80g roasted almonds
200g dates
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons coconut oil
splash water

1. Roast the almonds for around 10 minutes at 180 degrees

2. Add all of the other ingredients to the food processor and whizz

3. Shape into about 25 balls, rolling each one in the desiccated coconut

4. Chill in the fridge for a couple of hours
