1 cup each of: pumpkin/sunflower/flax (linseed) seeds;
1 cup protein powder (I use Vital Protein as it is a good quality one, no artificial colourings and additives)
1/2 cup maca powder
1/2 cup goji berries
3/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup olive oil
a good dash of cinnamon powder (I grind my own as the one in supermarkets is stale and not fresh)
2 TBS of organic, unsweetened,cacao powder (I use Loving Earth)
1 TBS carob powder
2 cups coconut desiccated (organic and not from supermarket unless it states no preservative)
*dried fruit is optional and only in small amounts as dried fruit has more sugar then in the raw state.
In these ones I’ve put 150 g dried prunes and 10 dates soaked in hot water (250 ml) for 10 minutes to soften up and added the liquid as well (half the quantity).
Step 1: Grind first flaxseeds in a food processor, as they take longer, discard in a large bowl. Proceed with the other seeds and discard on top of the batch of seeds already done.Note:Do not over mix as they will become seed butter. Grind until course texture only. Finish off with goji berries achieving the same texture.
Step 2:Mix with hands the mixture and add the other ingredients and only 1 cup of desiccated coconut. Mix well until well combined,it should not be too wet or too dry,if too dry add more oils.
Step 3:Put aside 1 bowl with water and 1 with the 1 cup of desiccated coconut.When the right consistency is achieved wet hands and take small amounts of the mixture, press and shape firmly until round, about the size of a walnut or smaller (grape) if wanted. Roll the ball in the coconut then set aside on a tray or container.
Can replace the coconut for rolling with chia seeds if preferred.
Store in fridge up to 2 weeks. Serving size depends on the size created if walnut size 2-3, if grape size 4-6 is a good amount.
Great for kids lunch boxes, on the go when you know you will skip breakfast/lunch; in the afternoon when the sugar craveitits hits in; after sport activity.
