This recipe is a part of a collaboration with Si from The Diet Kitchen - we challenged each other to create a healthy and tasty recipe perfect for Autumn and after I used carrots in mine (to set the orange/Autumnal theme!), Si chose to use pumpkin in his Pumpkin Pie Overnight Protein Oats.
- 9-10 Medjool dates (pitted)
- 1/2 cup (70g) walnuts/pistachios*
- 1/2 cup (70g) ground flaxseeds/almonds*
- 2 grated carrots*
- 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ginger
- dash of nutmeg, 1/2 tsp mixed spice (optional)
- desiccated coconut (optional)
Place the dates, walnuts, ground flaxseeds, carrots & spices into a food processor* and blitz until combined.
Scoop out small handfuls of the mixture & roll it into 14-16 balls, placing them on a plate. Roll some of them in desiccated coconut (unsweetened) if you like it .. trust me this step makes them taste amazing!
Pop them in the fridge or freezer for 15 minutes before enjoying! Keep them chilled between eating :)
*I love these food processors!
P.S. I’m entering this recipe into Simply Health’s Healthy Smiles recipe competition as it includes 2 out of the 6 recommended foods/drinks to eat for healthy teeth .. Carrots and Ginger .. and it contains 3 if you include the Green Tea that I suggest you drink along side them (you can check out my favourite Green Teas here!) .. wish me luck!
