Nut Free Energy Bites

I made these nut free energy bites for my friend who is allergic to nuts as she was always left out when my other friends were tasting my energy snacks. I would normally use sticky dried fruit and nuts but instead of nuts I used sunflower seeds. Sunflower seeds are rich in magnesium and selenium and give that nice crunch and texture.

Makes: 18 bites
Preparation time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:
– 1 cup dates
– 1/2 cup soft prunes
– 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
– 1/2 cup oats

-1 tbps raw cacao powder

– 1/2 tsp vanilla

In a high speed food processor process dates until it forms a paste, add the prunes, vanilla essence, and mix until well combined. Add the remaining ingredients and process until it resembles a dough. Add some more water if it’s too dry. Allow the dough to rest in the fridge for about 2 hours. Once rested roll out into 20 balls. Keep the bites in an airtight container in the fridge or kitchen cupboard. Eat within a couple of weeks.
