Paleo with Mrs P's Christmas Energy Balls
150g Ground Almonds
1 cup Mixed Dried Fruit (a mixture of any dried fruit- medjool dates, dried cranberries, apricots, golden berries, raisins, sultanas etc- so long as you make up 1 cups' worth)
1 tsp Orange Zest
½ tsp Lemon Zest (optional)
½ tsp Mixed Spice
2 tsp Cacao Nibs (optional)
1 tbsp water
40g Cacao Butter
1.5 tbsp Maple Syrup, Raw Honey or Sweetener (stevia etc)
¼ tsp ground vanilla
1 tbsp Goji Berries
5 mint leaves
It can be a serious challenge to find a little something sweet to please all your guests come Christmas. There’s your gluten-free nieces, a paleo brother, diabetic BFF, vegan aunt, and the five fitness fiends all on festive diets. Tricky, hey?
Well, there’s no need to throw in the (tea)-towel with Paleo from Mrs P in town!
Mrs P, AKA Emma, has teamed our cacao nibs with a host of seasonal somethings to create her healthy, gluten-free, raw, vegan energy balls.
And that’s not all. These energy balls are total picture-worthy bites with their Christmas pud finish!
We’d give you the method, but we’re going to send you to Mrs P’s blog for that (so you can also drool over all the pics). Enjoy!
