Energy Power Bombs

Do you ever feel like you need some extra energy or nutritional value?  If so, these power bombs are perfect for you.  I take these nutritionally packed power balls with me when I travel, and should I run low on energy, these do the job.  They are such a great little snack.  Did I mention that they also taste delicious.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup dried apricots (95g)

1/4 cup cashews (38g)

3 tablespoons old fashioned oats (24g)

3/4 cup shredded coconut (37g)

1 tablespoon chia seeds (10g)

pinch of salt

1 tablespoons maple syrup (25g)

1 tablespoon coconut milk (16g)

1/2 teaspoon vanila extract

 

Instructions:

In a food processor add the dried apricots and blend into a rough paste.  Next add cashews and oats to the food processor and blend until a crumble consistency.  Add the shredded coconut, chia seeds, and pinch of salt to the food processor and blend until a rough dry mixture has formed.  Next add the maple syrup, coconut milk, and vanilla extract.  Blend everything together for 1-2 minutes until a sticky dough has formed.

Roll the dough into small bite size balls and chill in the freezer or fridge for 20-30 minutes.  Store them in a plastic tupperware container and take along for your next adventure.

Note:  You can dip the finished balls in melted carob for an extra touch.  I add a little melted coconut oil to melted carob to make it a dipping consistency.  Put them on a piece of parchment paper and chill in the freeze until the carob sets.  Store in a travel container.
