Almond and Chia Energy Bites

One of the hard things about being on a clean, healthy diet is when the 3pm munchies strike.  Everyone else is tucking into the cake and chocolate that so many offices seem to have these days, leaving you feeling miserable as you watch them indulge.  Well, not any more!  Thanks to Deliciously Ella, these Almond and Chia Energy Bites will give you the afternoon pick me up you need whilst also satisfying that sweet craving.  I made these last night and love them!

To make about 20 balls:

200g almonds

400g Medjool dates

4 tablespoons raw cacao powder

2 tablespoons almond butter (Ella makes her own but I went for the cheats option and bought some!)

2 tablespoons coconut oil

2 tablespoons chia seeds

 

Put the almonds into a food processor and whiz for about 30 seconds until crushed.

Pit the dates and add to the crushed almonds along with all the other ingredients and 2 tablespoons of water.  Blend again until everything is mixed together and it’s all nice and sticky.

Roll the mix into balls.

Place in the freezer for an hour to set, then store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Enjoy!
