You know, I’m the kind of girl who loves middle afternoon snack time. Really, cannot live without it! Being an adult makes me think I’m too old for this but I read often that it’s not bad to eat less quantity but more often. And generally, I keep it very light at lunch time, so when I come back home at 5.00PM, I’m starving !
Instead of my really non-healthy 2 spoons of Nutella to ease my hunger, I searched for healthy recipe.
I wanted to try date so hard but never found in my supermarket… Until that time, where Muslims are celebrating Ramadan! There was a lot of chickpeas, semolina, almond paste and finally, yay, date paste ! It was even more perfect than raw dates !
So here is the recipe I came up with, only two ingredients, no baking, you cannot found easier one !
Vegan Energy Balls :
For 16 balls :
- 500g of date paste
- 70g of nuts of your choice, salted of not… Personnaly for this one, I took a mix of salted peanuts, cashews, almonds and hazelnuts ! Not the healthiest choice but you have to treat yourself sometimes 😉
1/ Coarsly crush the nuts into a mortar or in your food processor.
2/ Cut the date paste into 16 pieces, then roll it into your hands.
3/ Roll the balls into the nuts. And you’re done !
Bon appétit !
