Recipes: raw energy balls and Flourless Banana Pancakes

Raw Energy Balls




Made 25 (but depends how large you want to make them!)

  • 1 cup of medjool dates/dried pitted dates (154g)
  • 3/4 cup cashews (83g)
  • 3/4 cup pecans (73g)
  • 2 tablespoons of chia seeds (22g)
  • 2 tablespoons of linseeds (23g)
  • 20g coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tableS desiccated coconut (8g)
  • 2 tablespoon of raw cacao powder (11g)
  • 1 tablespoon of water
  • 5g orange zest
  1. Place nuts, coconut, linseed and chia in your food processor and blend until powdery and all nuts chopped up.
  2. Then add the remaining ingredients, pitting the dates before adding those.
  3. Blend till sticky dough forms. ย I had to blend mine in a couple of batches because my blender = not so good!
  4. Use your hands to roll the mixture into little balls, place in a bowl and store in the fridge.
  5. I put some in the freezer as well as a healthy frozen treat!

Good for before or after exercise- I plan to have 1 pre and 1 post riding tomorrow! ย Not the greatest picture I’m afraid, but that’s just poor photography on my part- they taste like chewy chocolate orange! ๐Ÿ™‚



Flourless Banana Pancakes

This was the first time I’d made these, and they were delicious! ย Had them post boot-camp style work out and they were so tasty, and full of goodness! ๐Ÿ™‚

Makes 4-5 decent sized pancakes, or a lot more smaller ones.

  • 6 eggs
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • dash stevia
  • 2 tableS chia seeds
  • handful pecans
  • dash milk
  • coconut oil, for the cooking
  1. Pop all ingredients in the blender and blend till smooth.
  2. Add milk to get desired consistency.
  3. Mine was quite thick, so next time I will add a bit more milk to thin.
  4. Heat coconut oil till melted and hot
  5. Spoon a ladle of mixture into fry pan and cook as you would a normal pancake.
  6. Flip, cook other side a little, and serve

* Can burn more easily than normal pancakes, so be careful not to have pan up too high, and keep an eye on them!

* ย Great served with a dash of maple syrup, as a natural sweetener
