Festive Bites

IMG_8657

As it’s getting colder, you may feel energy depleted. Your body has to work extra hard to keep you warm which is why these energy balls are so brilliant for you right now. It’ll give you that extra boost you need to take you out Christmas shopping and to those Christmas parties. These bites are so incredibly easy to make too!

Ingredients:
7 medjool dates
1 cup almonds
2 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp lucuma powder (optional)
1 tbsp cashew butter
1 tsp almond butter
1 tbsp raw cacao
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp ginger

Honestly… blend the almonds first, add the pitted dates along with all the other ingredients, then roll the mixture into balls. Put them in the freezer for an hour then store them in the fridge. I sprinkled coconut on top of mine like a dusting of snow.

I love making energy bites and since we are now into the first week of December, I gave these a lovely festive flavouring. The rich chocolate and caramel tones make them so delicious and of course this comes from only the best nutritious whole foods. Raw cacao is a fantastic superfood providing antioxidants to your body while giving an intense chocolate scrumminess. It’s also a source of iron and magnesium, both essential minerals for thriving bodies. Lucuma and chia seeds provide additional superfood powers, giving your body a whole host of vitamins and minerals. What really works to stick these balls together are the juicy medjool dates – my all-time favourite food! These festive bites are the perfect treat to make you feel happy and healthy. I love the spices of the nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger, they are sure to get you in the spirit.
