Banana Bliss – Energy Balls - Vegan & Healthy

A great lunch box filler for kids (or big kids) or a nice treat with a cup of tea/coffee.

Simple and quick to make, you can rolled in coconut, cacao, nuts or leave them plain and eat them as is.

Ingredients – makes 16 balls

  • 1 medium-size banana (best if it’s a bit overripe)
  • 2 cups organic rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons coconut water

Blended with Kuvings SV500 Vacuum Blender

Method

Step 1: Gather your ingredients and place them into the blender.

Step 2: Turn the dial slowly on your Blender to gently bring the ingredients together.

Step 3: Keep blending until you have a good ‘cookie dough’ consistency. You might need to scrape down the sides with a spatula and use your tamper to push the mix onto the blades.

Step 4: Scrape the mixture out into a bowl.

Step 5: Set up separate bowls of ‘toppings’ (coconut, nuts, dried fruit, cacao nibs).

Step 6: Use an ice cream scoop (or spoon) to put a small measure into the palm of your hand, rub your hands in opposite directions to form a small ball.

Step 7: Drop the ball into one of your ‘topping bowls’ and cover.

Step 8: When you have ‘dusted’ all of the mixture, place in the fridge to get cold.

They will last (if you can stop eating them…hehe) for about 5-7 days in the fridge.

Enjoy!

Eat Well ! Enjoy
