I’ve been tidying up our food cupboard this morning as it seems that we had gazillions of nearly-empty bags of pasta in different shapes and other random ingredients that are not enough to make anything with.

Having said that, I also came across some left-over ingredients to make four (yes that’s 4!) energy balls, which were absolutely delicious and have already disappeared into our bellies.

These are made with raw chocolate powder, which provides a super tasty chocolatey treat without any refined sugar.

Recipe:

6 Medjool dates
3/4 cup of almonds (soaked in water for 10 minutes)
2 tsp of raw cocoa powder
1 tbsp spoon of desiccated coconut
1 tbsp of almond milk (any milk or water would work. I use milk to ‘glue’ all the ingredients together)
1 tsp of vanilla extract (optional)

Blend all of the ingredients except the coconut together, roll into balls and then dust with the coconut. Enjoy!

• Cup of mix dry fruit
• Cup of soaked almonds

• Dry cranberry to make them like Rudolf’s nose.
Blend everything together, roll small amounts into balls and eat.
