Ingredients

  • 170g mixed nuts (we used pecans and blanched almonds)
  • 250g pitted Medjool dates
  • 70g cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 50g desiccated coconut

Step by step

Get ahead
The brownie bites keep for up to 1 week in the fridge, or can be frozen.
  1. Heat a dry frying pan and lightly toast the nuts for a few minutes. Leave to cool.
  2. Add the cooled toasted nuts to a food processor and blend for 2 minutes until you have a thick paste. Add the pitted dates and blend again. Lastly, add the cacao and maple syrup and process to a sticky mixture.
  3. Take small handfuls of the mixture and roll into 15 balls (about 30g each).
  4. Roll the energy balls in the desiccated coconut, then place on a lined baking tray. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
