Ingredients

Mocha Power Balls:
50g walnuts
100g cashews 
180g soft medjool dates (around 12), pitted
20g cacao/cocoa powder 
2 tbsp espresso 
1-2 tbsp plant-based milk 
⅛ tsp salt 


Peanut Butter Power Balls:
100g cashews 
160g soft medjool dates (around 12)
70g peanut butter
1-2 tbsp plant-based milk
½ tsp vanilla extract
⅛ tsp salt

Coating options:
Cacao/cocoa powder
Coconut flakes
Freeze dried raspberries 
Chopped nuts

Method

STEP 1

To make Mocha Power Balls: Transfer the walnuts and cashews to a food processor for 2-3 minutes, until they have completely broken down and have a crumb-like texture. Add the pitted medjool dates and pulse for around a minute, until they are incorporated but the mixture isn’t completely smooth. 

STEP 2

Add the espresso, 1 tbsp milk and salt and mix on high for around 2 minutes or until the mixture forms a ball. Depending on how soft your dates are, you might need to add the second tbsp of milk - the mix/dough should hold together but not be wet.

STEP 3

To make Peanut Butter Power Balls: Transfer the cashews to a food processor for 2-3 minutes, until they have completely broken down and have a crumb-like texture. Add the pitted medjool dates and pulse for around a minute, until they are incorporated but the mixture isn’t completely smooth.

STEP 4

Add the peanut butter, 1 tbsp milk, vanilla extract and salt and mix on high for around 2 minutes or until the mixture forms a ball. Like with the mocha power balls, depending on how soft your dates are, you might need to add the second tbsp of milk - the mix/dough should hold together but not be wet.

STEP 5

Working one at a time, take a tbsp worth of mix and roll it into a ball. Repeat the process with the rest of the mix. At this point you can place them in the fridge to store them, or coat them (we’re big coaters, but they taste delicious either way).

STEP 6

If coating: put a couple tbsps of your preferred coating into a bowl, and roll your power balls in it. Transfer the coated power balls into to a tupperware or bowl and store in the fridge or freezer.

STEP 7

They’ll last around 2 weeks in the fridge and 2-3 months in the freezer. If storing in your freezer make sure you remove them 10 mins before eating.
