I’m onto a real good thing with this creation. I kinda cant get enough of them. Here’s hoping I slow down and the last the week. Blu also loves them. I didnt want to give her cacao however I kinda did one day and she was in love at first just like her mumma. I mean, I gave her 80 percent cacao and she loved it. It makes sense considering how much raw cacao I ate went I was pregnant. About the same amount as I still do.
Anyway these balls are YUMMY. Its a different type of sweet when you use apricots in comparison to dates its more fruity even though they are both fruits. That may not be the best description.
Everything I create is always rich in good for you ingredients. I gave some options for add ins such as “He Shou Wu” and “Lions Mane”. I added these however they are optional and the taste wont be affected if you don’t add them. But I am a big fan of medicinal mushrooms so I love sneaking them in whenever I can.
Apricot & Chocolate ENERGY Balls
- 350g organic apricots
- 1/2 cup cashew butter
- 1/3 coconut oil
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 tbsp cacao powder
- 1/2 tbsp lions mane
- 1 tsp He Shou Wu
How to cook Apricot & Chocolate ENERGY Balls
- Pour Rolled oats into the blender. Blend until you have a rough flour. If using the optional add-ins add them along with the cacao. Blend until combined. Transfer the dry flour mix to a mixing bowl.
- Add apricots, coconut oil, and cashew butter to the blender. Blend until combined. the mixture will be very thick and sticky but will be free from apricot chunks. Transfer the apricot mixture to the mixing bowl that contains the four mix.
- Using your hands or a spoon combine. Once combined roll into balls. The size is up to you. I like to make them into bite-size balls. Place the balls on a lined tray or plate and then place in the freezer to firm. Once the balls are frozen you can transfer to an airtight container. I like to use a Mason Jar and keep in the freezer but you can always store in the fridge.
