Superfood Energy Bites
makes about 15 large individual portions
1/3 cup (55g) almonds
1 cup (250g) dates
1/2 cup (55g) goji berries
1/3 cup (45g) shelled hemp seeds
2/3 cup (180g) smooth almond butter
1 tbsp spirulina
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
optional: desiccated coconut to roll in for decoration
1. Firstly, add the almonds, cinnamon and spirulina into your food processor for 10 seconds and blitz until the almonds are roughly chopped.
2. Then add in the dates, goji berries, almond butter, hemp seeds, and vanilla into the processor. Blend for a further few minutes (about 2-3), stopping occasionally and scraping down the sides of your processor, until the nuts and other ingredients have broken down and formed a sticky crumb.
3. When this is done, take a handful of the mixture and press into a ball shape. Then, repeat until all of the mixture has been used up. To decorate, finish by pouring some desiccated coconut onto a plate, and rolling each one onto the coconut to cover them. Then serve.
