These little balls of energy are great for pre- or post-workouts or for a mid-afternoon pick me up.

They don’t require any baking and use only a few ingredients I tend to have in the cupboard.

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon coconut oil (melted)
1 tablespoon runny honey
50g dates
1 tablespoon chai seeds
2 teaspoons cinnamon
50g almond butter
100g oats

Method:

1. Mix the melted coconut oil and honey together in a bowl.

2. Add the almond butter and combine together with the honey and coconut oil.

5. Add the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients.

6. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

7. Separate the dough into tablespoon sized balls and roll to shape.

8. Place the balls onto the baking tray to set – this 30-60mins.

9. Store in a air tight container in the fridge.
