Glow & energy balls

These delicious glow and energy balls are made from natural, organic, energy-releasing superfoods including collagen peptides to support glowing skin, healthy tissue, and strong bones. If you are like me and love a tasty snack on the go, then these are the perfect healthy option for when you need a spring in your step, and something to satisfy your sweet tooth.

I put together this recipe myself, and I hope you enjoy them just as much as I do.

* 14 medjool dates
* 1/2 cup of organic almonds
* 1/2 cup of organic cashews
* 3 tablespoons of collagen peptides
* 2 tablespoons of organic chia seeds
* 2 tablespoons of organic hemp seeds
* 2 tablespoons of organic cacao powder
* 1 tablespoon of organic raw coconut oil
* 3 tablespoons of ground flaxseed with vitamin D & bio cultures
* Organic desiccated coconut
Optional: 1 tablespoon of almond butter

1. Place ingredients into a large mixing bowl and use a handheld blender (I like this method so I can keep an eye on the consistency, and is much easier with less washing up) or you can use a food processor.
2. Add more flaxseed and almond/cashew nuts until a dough-like consistency is formed. If it becomes too dry, add a small amount of filtered water or unsweetened coconut milk.
3. Roll into ping pong size balls then coat each of them in organic desiccated coconut.
4. ︎Place in the refrigerator, or the freezer if you like a firmer texture.

This makes approximately 18 balls and they are great for the rest of the family to enjoy too!

I have linked the collagen peptides brand and my very trusty handheld blender in my highlights on instagram. It’s so quick and easy – I use it a lot, especially for soups!

Enjoy xx
