Servings 25small energy balls or about 15 large ones
1packed cupmedjool dates- 220 grams, or about 11-12 dates
1 and 1/2cupscashews(raw, unsalted) - about 200 grams
5tspKakadu plum powderfrom The Australian Superfood Co.
2-3tspground ginger- adjust according to taste
3/4cupdesiccated coconutOR 1/2 cup sesame seeds, OR a mix, for coating the balls
Remove the pits from the medjool dates and place in a food processor along with the cashews. Process so the dates and cashews break up a little, into a rough sticky crumb.
Add the quinoa flakes, cacao powder, ginger and Kakadu plum powder. Continue to process until the mixture forms a sticky dough. It will probably start to come together as one big ball in the food processor.
Scoop out heaped teaspoons of the mixture and roll into a ball. Roll in coconut or sesame seeds to coat. Repeat with remaining mixture.
Pop the energy balls in the fridge, where they will firm up a bit. Keep them stored in the fridge where they should last for a few weeks. They can also be frozen if you want to keep them for longer!
*You can substitute rolled oats or quick oats for the quinoa flakes in this recipe.
