Raw Food Snacks

In my daily diet plan I have 3 meals, 1 juice, 1 snack like these below to curb my sweet craving and usually a piece of fruit or 2.

I tend to make a batch at the beginning of the week to keep me going and keep me on track with my diet.

Raw Vegan Energy Balls

Raw Food Snack Balls

These delicious energy bars are so quick and easy to make, I whip up a batch at the beginning of the week so I can just grab a couple from the fridge when a little energy boost is needed!

This is just a basic mix but you can really add loads of different flavor combinations to make them more interesting. I´m going to try some carrot ones next so keep an eye out for that recipe. 

With the ingredients you can also swap and change the wet ingredients, for example if you don´t have any peanut butter in the house (god forbid!) then double up on the honey instead. 

Ingredients 

  • 100g Oats
  • 50g Desiccated Coconut
  • 50g Chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp Peanut Butter
  • 2 tbsp Honey 
  • 2tbsp Melted Coconut oil
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon 

Method

Pour all dry ingredients and vanilla essence into a bowl.

Next pour over the honey, peanut butter and melted coconut oil.

Simply roll into balls - if you feel the mix is too dry then add more honey. Or If its too wet then just add more coconut or oats!

Finally pop in the fridge for 30 minutes or so until the balls are fully set.

Lemon, Pistachio & Goji Berry Raw Bar 

Preparation time: 5 minutes + 1 hour freezing time

Ingredients...

  • 1/2 cup of raw pistachios (remove shells) 
  • 1/4 cup dried goji berries
  • 1 cup of dates

  • 1 tbsp lemon zest (1 lemon's worth will do)

Blend the nuts and dried fruit for around 15 seconds in a processor, best to use a good quality food processor to avoid the fruit clogging in the blades.

When the contents are fully blended into a coarse consistency, add the rest of the ingredients - again 15 seconds should do.

Put the whole mixture in the tin and spread evenly press to mold. 

Place pan into freezer for 1 hour to harden. Cut into desired dimensions. Store in freezer in airtight container.
