These are the perfect, tasty snack to pop into kids’ lunchboxes. Or, into your own bag to nibble on while you’re on the run and trying not to be tempted by junk food. Throw some optional protein powder into these too if you like, and use them as a little post-workout treat. Delicious flavour bites at any time; just the thought of eating these makes me feel great.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
60g sunflower seeds
70g pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
40g chia seeds (black or white)
30g shredded coconut
40g brasil nuts
40g almonds
30g hemp seeds
2 1/2 tablespoons each bee pollen, optional
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
40g raw cacao powder
40g plant-based protein powder, optional (see note)
14 medjool dates, pitted, about 280 g
80ml rice malt syrup
desiccated coconut, for rolling

Method

  1. Place the sunflower seeds, pepitas, chia seeds and shredded coconut in your food processor or blender and pulse until a fine meal is formed. Add the brazil nuts and almonds and pulse until they are finely chopped but still have a bit of texture; they shouldn’t be like meal (see note).
  2. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and add the hemp seeds, bee pollen (if using), cinnamon, raw cacao powder and protein powder (if using).
  3. Place the dates and rice malt syrup in the food processor or blender and process until smooth. Add to the dry ingredients in the bowl and combine well – you may need to get your hands in there and really mush the ingredients together if mixing it with a spoon isn’t doing the trick. (Just make sure you wash those hands first!) Add a tablespoon of water if the mixture seems a bit dry.
  4. Next, take about a tablespoon of the mixture at a time and roll it into 2.5 cm balls. Roll the balls in the desiccated coconut to lightly coat then place them in an airtight container. Refrigerate or freeze them. These will keep for up to 2 weeks in the fridge, and a couple of months in the freezer.

NOTE

  • If you want a softer truffle, pulse the ingredients until everything is a fine meal. Use any flavour protein powder you like – chocolate, vanilla or coconut, for example.
