This simple recipe could give you that afternoon boost you need, without reaching for the nearest chocolate bar or bag of crisps…
01 – Put all the ingredients into a food processor or blender (apart from the desiccated coconut) and blitz until it’s a rough paste. If you don’t have a food processor, it’s possible to finely chop the ingredients, as the nut butter works well at sticking the mixture together.
02 – Roll the mixture into small balls, approximately 2cm in diameter and then cover them in desiccated coconut.
03 – Once all the balls are finished, put them in the fridge and leave them to set before tucking in.
