Cocoa, Maca and Almond Energy Balls
75g oats (use gluten free if preferred)
50g soft pitted dates
30g dried figs
1 heaped tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp maca powder
30g coconut oil, melted
15g cocoa powder
30g chocolate flavour whey or rice protein powder (optional)
Place the oats in a blender or food processor. Blend until finely ground.
Add the dates and figs and blend until crumbly. Add the remaining ingredients and blend well.
Transfer to a bowl and combine into a ball using your hands. Add a splash of cold water or almond milk if the mixture is too dry. It should hold together well.
Divide the mixture into 10 pieces and roll into balls. Place on a plate and dust lightly with cocoa powder.
Refrigerate for 10 minutes or until firm.
Store in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze on same day.
