The so-called “Energy Balls” prove that healthy eating and snacking do not have to be mutually exclusive. The small balls are ideal as an ideal power snack before and after a workout or for in between. Due to the high protein and energy content, the empty stores are quickly replenished and, thanks to the sweetness of the dried fruits, the cravings are satisfied.
The basic recipe for 15 balls is simple: mix 100 g nuts (e.g. walnuts, almonds, cashews) with 200 g dried fruits (e.g. dates, figs, apricots) in a mixer and shape into praline-sized balls. If desired, turn in toppings (e.g. desiccated coconut, amaranth, oat flakes) and cool for approx. 1 hour before consumption.
