These energy balls are inspired by my absolute love for banana bread. I love anything banana flavoured, they are such a staple in my diet, so I'm always trying out new recipes using them. These energy balls are so easy to make and taste just like banana bread, just in a slightly different texture and form. My fridge has been stocked with a tub of these for the last few weeks, I just can't get enough. They are so great for taking on the go or for a sweet treat after dinner.
You will need (makes 10 balls):
1 small/medium ripe banana
5 Medjool dates
1 cup oats
3/4 cup cashews
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla paste
- Start by pitting the dates and then add these along with all the other ingredients to a food processor.
- Blend everything together until the mixture combines and starts to stick together.
- Roll the mixture into 10 snack sized balls and pop in the fridge for a few hours to set. Store in the fridge in an airtight container.
Ps. I also have a recipe for banana bread if you fancy making the real thing!
