Great Tasting Nutty Energy Snack

by James Kerrison on February 16, 2010

Enough of the tough exercises!

Back to great tasting food already!!

Here’s a quick and easy recipe I have tweaked a little compared to the original recipe you can find on page 74 of the Fat Burning Kitchen ebook.

After bootcamp on Saturday morning we had some samples for people to try.

The taste test was a hit with the only negative feedback being they were a bit dry.

So here is the recipe I used to make this healthy alternative to your normal choc or rum balls.

They have a hit of chocolate flavour, a subtle nutty flavour and are packed with natural, healthy nutrients.

Nutty Energy Snack

  • ½ Cup Almond Butter
  • ½ Cup Ground Flaxseeds (Flax Meal)
  • ½ Cup Tahini (I used unhulled, but it was a bit bitter, so it might be better to use hulled)
  • ¼ Cup Chocolate Protein Powder
  • ¼ Cup Ground Pumpkin Seeds
  • ¼ Cup Real Maple Syrup
  • 1 Teaspoon Stevia
  • 1 Teaspoon Cacao Powder (Use cocoa if you must, but cacao is 100x better!)

Combine all ingredients in a medium size bowl, or you could probably use a food processor.

Add the smallest bit of water if they are a bit dry, or a bit more flax meal if they are too wet.

Scoop a heaped teaspoon and roll into balls. Then roll them in shredded or dessicated coconut.

Refrigerate.

Eat.

(They go well with a hot drink such as tea!) Feel free to try using different nut butters or protein powder to vary the taste.

Let me know what you think!
