GIVE ME SOME POWER-BALLS – THE PERFECT PRE- AND POST-RUNNING SNACK

I made these AMAZING chocolatey crunchy power-balls (gluten free and vegan) and not only are they super simple to make, but they are a protein and fibre powerhouse of goodness – they are great as a pre-/post-workout snack or a no fuss treat on-the-go.

In a blender add:

1 cup of dates (soaked for a few minutes in warm water to get them soft)

1 cup of nuts or seeds

1/3 cup of sesame tahini

1/2 cup of rolled oats

1/2 cup of shredded coconut

1/4 cup of maple syrup

1 tbsp of chia seeds

1 tbsp of hemp hearts

1 tbsp ground flaxseeds

1 tbsp cacao powder

1 tsp of vanilla

Mix all together, then roll into balls. Leave them to set in the fridge for 30 minutes.

I like to keep treats like this stored in the fridge as it helps them to stay firm, especially now the weather is starting to heat up.

Enjoy!
