As you all know by now I hate wasting food! So when I found the one over ripe banana lurking about in the fruit bowl I decided to make these little treats. I love banana bread but hadn’t got the time to make one so I made these up in a matter of minutes. You could always add some chocolate chips or dried fruit too. If you wanted to up the protein content add a couple of scoops of protein powder. Delicious with a cup of coffee or a quick go to as a snack or pre workout boost.
1 cup Walnuts
1 cup Almonds
1/2 cup Oats
8 pitted Dates
1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Mixed Spice
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Cacao Powder and Chopped Hazelnuts to decorate.
Grind the walnuts, almonds and oats in Nutribullet (or food processor).
Add in all the remaining ingredients and blend.
The mixture will be sticky so I put it in the fridge for around 30 mins to set.
Roll into 14 bite size balls and coat half with cacao powder and the other half with chopped hazelnuts.
