Congratulations to our 🏆Second Winner for the @boneiolam KIDDIE ON-THE-GO 🚗 CONTEST : - 🎊@esteezonline 🎉!!!! .
I'm super excited about this winner, because I just love these energy balls. #RaizysCookinApproved It's not just me, all my kids, neighbors & friends loved 'em too!
Here's Anette's delicious, healthy Kiddie (and adult!)-on-the-go meal idea: "
I needed to come up with a quick meal replacement for breakfast for the days that we have no time to sit and eat. So I kept hearing about energy balls and decided to make up a recipe and keep testing and tweaking it until it’s kid tested/mother approved. Turns out that my latest recipe is kid tested, kid approved which is a huge score!!! So from my husband and I, all the way down to my 5 year old and my other kids in between, we all grab and go, and I know that we are getting the nutrients we need even if we don’t have time." .
Annette's energy balls
600g bag of pitted dates
2 x 100g bag of ground almonds
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp coconut oil
200g bag unsweetened shredded coconut (half to put in the mix and half to roll the balls in)
1 tbsp hot water
6 squares bittersweet unsweetened chocolate (melted)
Put all the ingredients except the coconut in a blender and blend until it's a thick paste. (If it doesn't blend, you may need a bit more hot water but be careful not to put too much because it can get too mushy)
Add half of the coconut and continue blending.
Put remaining coconut into a bowl and roll balls into the coconut until the ball is fully covered in coconut. Then roll the ball in your hand gently so that the coconut settles into the ball and then re-roll the ball and place into muffin paper, in a container.
Refrigerate. The energy balls are good for approx 10 days.
This recipe makes about 30 the size of a golf ball. I make 15 energy balls but I make them a bit bigger and use them as a meal replacement for breakfast. .
You can still enter and win the big prize too!
