'Charoset' energy ballz

Updated: Jun 10, 2020

While in quarantine, I have been cooking and baking - testing recipes for Pesach - and looking for healthy snack such as these charoset energy balls.

Why charoset? Because.....

1) the ingredients are almost identical ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

2) Pesach is also dominating my headspace⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

3) I did actually use a charoset recipe for one of these⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


And so it is, charoset energy balls for a healthy snack in lockdown.

Why don't you try make some?⠀ (recipe below)


Base recipe:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

150g pitted dates⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

1/2 cup almonds⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

1/2 tsp cinnamon⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

1/2 tsp vanilla extract⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A pinch of sea salt⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


For variatons:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Add into the base recipe items such as dried figs, tahini, orange blossom water, or matcha. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Put all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz together.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Form into balls and then roll the balls in ground flour, shredded coconut, cocoa, sesame seeds or anything else that appeals to you! This recipe should make 16 balls.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


If the mixture gets too sticky to roll, dip your hands into a bowl of water.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


Keep in an airtight container to enjoy when you are feeling peckish!
