This one is for Jane, and all the other mums fighting to get your kids to enjoy slightly healthier treats at lunchtime
In a food processor I put:
1/2 cup mixed seeds
1/3 ground almonds
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
BLITZZZZZ then add:
1 big handful of dates
1/4 cup tahini or nut butter
Blitz again add a little water until sticky dough.
Roll into balls with wet hands and dust with cocoa or
coconut. Keep in the fridge up to 4 weeks (no chance they'll last that long though!!).
Nutritional Note: Nuts and seeds are excellent sources of protein and calcium, keeping small bellies fuller for longer. Cocoa has natural antioxidants and mood lifting properties for happy faces, enjoy :-)
