Healthy candy balls

Who doesn’t love snacking? I noticed that many of you choose snacks like sweet protein bars. These products are made to believe that they’re healthy, but unfortunately this is not always true. Most tend to contain a lot of sugar which we all know isn’t very healthy. And although I like to snack, I’d rather not eat products with added sugars or unnatural substances. That’s why I started to look for products that are not only tasty, but also super healthy.

”Powersnack balls”, that’s what I call these delicious and healthy little candy balls made of dates, nuts, pits, coconut and MACA. It’s a real power snack because it’s filled with healthy nutrients, fibres, vitamins and minerals. And why did I add MACA? Well, MACA is a tuberous plant that originates from Peru. First of all, it is a source that stabilizes your nervous- and muscular system, and keeps it balanced too. Also, it stimulates the production of hormones in your body. Last but not least, it stimulates your libido (don’t let your man read this ;)). Not entirely unimportant, right? Yes ladies, this little snack does a lot of good to our body!

What you need:

– 200 gram of dates
– 50 gram of oatmeal
– 50 gram of pumpkin pits
– 50 gram of sunflower pits
– 50 gram of raw cacao powder
– 3 tablespoons of maca powder
grated coconut
– 2 raspberries

How to make it:

– Add all the ingredients, except the raspberries and coconut, into a food processor and pulse until everything is well mixed.
– Scoop out the ”dough” with a tablespoon and use your hands to roll the mixture into small balls.
– To make the pink coating, blend the grated coconut and rasperries together. Roll the balls in the grated coconut mixture.

Enjoy! 🙂
