Ingredients

Chocolate Ball Pops
  • Sunflower seeds - 70g
  • Nuts (almonds, Brazil nuts, macadamias) - 120g
  • Chia seeds or flax seeds (linseeds) - 2 tbsp
  • Almond butter - 60g
  • Unsweetened desiccated coconut, plus additional for rolling - 25g
  • Uncooked cacao powder - 2.5 tbsp
  • Floor cinnamon - 1 tsp
  • Sea Salt - pinch

Method

  1. Blitz seeds and nuts in a blender. Switch to a bowl and add almond butter, coconut, cacao powder, cinnamon and salt. Mix properly.
  2. Add a drizzle of water if the combination is just too stiff. Roll into eight walnut-sized balls, then roll them within the additional coconut and chia seeds. Use slender straws to make ‘pops’.
