A lot of you that have been to the Fitbot Bootcamps will have enjoyed the Energy Bites we have with coffee at the end of the session. They do genuinely give you a burst of energy when you most need it, whether a snack replacement during the day or a quick fix after a tough workout.
Some of you were asking for the recipe, so here you go:
Makes about 20 balls
1 mug almonds (200g)
2 mugs dates (400g)
4 tablespoons cacao powder
2 tablespoons almond butter
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 tablespoon flaxeed (with almond/brazil nut/walnut)
1 tablespoon hemp powder
Put the almonds in the food processor for about 30 seconds until they're totally crushed.
Pit the dates and add them, plus all the other ingredients with two tablespoons of water, blend everything again until the mixture is nice and sticky.
Roll into balls and place in the freezer for about an hour, you then transfer to an air tight container and store in the fridge.
There you go......they also last ages so you can make a batch at the start of the week and they will last you through to Sunday. They only negative with these balls is to avoid eating all 20 in one go......it's been done before......
