These tasty little balls are a great source of omegas, calcium, iron and vitamin E. This dairy-free recipe is suitable for vegetarians and also babies during stage 2 weaning!
If you don’t have the time to roll into balls, they work just as well pressed into a lined cake tin and popped into the fridge to chill before cutting into bars.
100g pitted dates
200g dried figs or prunes (or a mix of both)
2-3 tbsp almond butter
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp flaxseeds
1 tbsp chia seeds
- Blend the nuts until ground (takes 30-40 seconds) then add the remaining ingredients and pulse until well blended.
- If a little dry (dried fruit can vary in moisture) add more dates, figs or prunes until you get the desired texture.
- Roll into balls or press into a lined tray then chill before cutting into bars.
- Store in the fridge for up to 1 month.
