I love these energy balls. They’re healthy, use only a few ingredients, are made in minutes and don’t require any baking. As an added bonus, you’ve probably already got the ingredients in your cupboard, so there’s not even any need to go out shopping.
I originally got the idea from Ani Phyo’s book, Raw Food Desserts (although her recipe uses raisins, while I used sultanas), but the mixture was too dry to form into balls, so I added the coconut oil which made it stick together while giving it an extra dimension with the coconut taste.
- 1 cup oats
- ½ cup dates
- ½ cup sultanas
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- Put all ingredients into a food processor and blitz until combined
- Roll into balls
- Can be eaten immediately but will firm up if left in the fridge
