Ok, so these are very very similar to my Low-Fat, Nut-Free Bliss Balls but people were keen for the recipe so I told them I'd post it and haven't gotten around to it because - kids. ;-)
I'm on a little role tonight, so here they are for you!
They are 'Super Hero Balls' purely because Iggy loves all things 'super hero' and they are filled with 'SUPER' foods!!
12 pitted medjool dates
1 tbsp raw vanilla protein powder
2 tsp mesquite powder
2 tsp maca powder
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 1/2 cups oats
1 cup dried apple
1/2 cup goji berries
In high speed blender, blend oats and apple on high speed for around 3-4 seconds, add in remaining ingredients and blend until well combined and able to be formed into balls. I added some extra roughly chopped dates to this mixture for some extra chewy, sweetness.
I like to keep mine in the fridge so they are firmer, or in the freezer to keep them for longer, but sadly, mine never last longer than a day or two as I am a total fiend for balls. ;-) (can barely keep a straight face typing that!)
** Reminder ** When consuming a lot of chia seeds, dehydrated foods and powders - drink a lot of water to replace the water from within your body that is being used for re-hydrating these foods for digestion.
