As a little thank you for all the amazing comments about our quick, easy, fun family recipes we wanted to share with you our latest video to demonstrate the Lemon Chia Energy Balls.
This recipe was invented especially for the lovely ladies who came to the Isle Lose It Women's Health And Wellbeing Event. After being in Dubai I discovered pure, food grade Lemon Oil and couldn't wait to try some. We will be selling this in The Pantry 8020 shop, but you could just use grated lemon rind for the same effect. I have to say though, the pure concentrated organic lemon oil is unbelievable!
You will need:
1 large mug dates
1/2 mug almonds/cashews
1/3 mug chia seeds
1/2 mug desiccated pure coconut (save some for dusting)
5-6 drops lemon oil (to taste, mine comes out in little drops so you may only need 4)
Blitz the dates and nuts until they form a rubble. Add the rest to the processor and pulse ir mix slowly until incorporated. Try not to over blend so you loose the texture and crunch.
Roll into little round shaped bites and roll on the left over dissociate coconut.
P.s these are so much better kept in the fridge. Take to work for snacks, or have them pre workout.
