These fig, stem ginger and dark chocolate energy bites or ‘bliss balls’ are a delicious and instant pick me up. Figs are sweet. The flesh is smooth and chewy and the seeds are crunchy.
Fig, Stem ginger and Dark chocolate energy bites
- 200 g partially rehydrated figs
- 3 tbsp peanut butter or almond butter
- 1 tbsp stem ginger syrup From a jar of stem ginger
- 35 g dark chocolate grated
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 60 g oats
Add all the ingredients apart from the chocolate into the bowl of a food processor and pulse till it comes together.
Add the chocolate to the mix and using the palm of your hands, shape the dough into balls.
Place in the fridge to set for an hour.
Details of the figs I use can be found in the paragraph above the recipe.
If you prefer, use dates instead. Pre soak them for an hour and add 1 tsp coconut oil to the mix.
