Keep this little bites of goodness close to hand when your body is in need of a little pick-me-up
200g Medjool dates, pitted (I like to have a few extra dates to hand in case the mixture isn’t quite sticky enough, as it can vary a little for each batch)
Zest and juice of 1 orange
2 tbsp raw
2 tbsp maple syrup
Blend the almonds in a food processor to break them into smaller pieces. Add the dates, whizzing for a minute or so. Add all the orange zest and 1 tablespoon of the juice to the food processor, along with the raw cacao and the maple syrup, before mixing until evenly distributed.
Try a little of the mixture, adding extra orange juice if needed. Use your hands to roll the mixture in your palms (wetting your hands slightly if necessary) until you have about 16 even-sized balls.
Place them in the fridge or freezer to set and store. They will keep for 1 week in the fridge and for 2 weeks in the freezer.Recipe extracted from Mind Body Bowl by Annie Clark (£16.99, Harper Collins)
