Another really versatile recipe, that you can swap out for different nuts, seeds, berries to keep it interesting and to make use of what the shop also sells alongside the main staples.


100g pecans
100g hazelnuts
20g mixed seeds – linseeds, flax, chia seeds
180g medjool dates
100g mixed dried berries – blueberries, cranberries, sour cherries
200g porridge oats (OR use oatmeal pinhead coarse or steel cut oats which all contain even more nutrition – can also use GF porridge oats)
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1-2 tablespoons maple, honey or coconut nectar
Pinch sea salt

Get making!

PLACE nuts, seeds, pitted dates + dried berries into a food processor.
BLITZ until nicely chopped.
ADD oats, coconut oil + maple or coconut nectar.
PULSE until combined but still with a bit of texture.
PRESS into tray or roll into small bite-sized balls.
Keep in fridge or freeze off. 

That’s it – no cooking so great to make with little ones. If you don’t have a food processor, a bag or tea towel and a rolling pin will do the job just as well – and work out any frustrations just as well as meditating. Just us? Oh…
