California Prune Energy Balls Recipe
California Prune Energy Balls
Total time: 15 to 30 minutes

 Cooking time: None

Difficulty: Easy
For 15 to 20 energy balls

- 175 ml / 3/4 cup almonds / walnuts mix
- 250 ml / 1 cup ready-to-eat California prunes
- 60 ml / 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
- 2 Tbsp. smooth nut butter

To decorate
- desiccated coconut

  1. Place the nuts in the food processor and blitz for a moment.
  2. Add the other ingredients, save for the coconut oil and desiccated coconut, and blend well, until smooth.
  3. Add a small amount of coconut oil, a few drops at a time, until the mixture is sticky, and holds its shape when you roll a small amount between your fingers.
  4. Take a tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a ball, and continue until all the mixture is used.
  5. Place a handful of desiccated coconut onto a plate and roll the balls in it, to coat, if using.
  6. If you’re in a cold climate, they set right away but a tip is to place in the freezer for about 45 minutes to set, and then store in an air-tight container in the fridge. They will keep for up to a week.
