Chocolate Cherry Goji Balls

cheryballs2

These delicious balls are great energy boosters, full of anti-oxidants, gluten-free & have no added refined sugar. They are brilliant clean-eating treats, especially when you are on the go (just pop some in a bag or tupperware) & great as healthy snacks for lunch-boxes & as a pre-gym snack.

Makes: 100 balls (about 1cm in size; you can roll bigger balls if you wish!)

Preparation time: 35-40 mins (depending how speedy you are in rolling balls!)

Ingredients:

1/2 cup walnuts

1/2 cup raw cashews

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp pumpkin seeds

1 tbsp sunflower seeds

1/2 cup dried cherries

1/4 cup pitted dates

1/4 cup goji berries

1 tbsp protein powder (I use soya-derived)

2 tbsp cacao nibs

1 tbsp cacao powder

1.5 tbsp water

1 tbsp lemon juice

Method:

Place the nuts & seeds in a food processor or blender and whizz to to form a crumbly mixture.

Add the dried cherries, dates, goji berriesprotein powdercacao nibs, cacao powder, water & lemon juice & whizz again to make a sticky dough.

Using your hands, roll into small balls about 1cm in size.

Set in the freezer for about 20 mins before chomping! These last for about 3-4 weeks in the refrigerator, but much longer if frozen & used as required.
