Maca is one of my favorite super foods. This powder made out of a sout- american root aids our mormon system, fights chronic fatigue and increases indurence and well-being. On top the taste is really good. is tastes good and has I made these energy balls for students of the "Yin Flow & Gong Bath Masterclass" I taught last saturday and promised to publish the recipe - so here it is. Quick and easy to make they give you energy for a long time and they helped us to get grounded after the high-vibe gong bath. I hope you enjoy them.
Always with love, xo, Nicole
Ingredients: (makes around 12 bigger or 20 smaller energy balls)
- 250 grams walnut kernels
-10 soaked dates (take the pit out of the dates and leave them soaking in warm water for around 3 hours or even overnight)
- 4 tablespoon maca powder
-3 tablespoon Protein Powder ( i used cacao carob protein powder but you can substitute with cacao powder if you wish)
- 2 tablespoon coconut flour
- A handful of coconut chips
-a few walnut kennels
1. Put the soaked dates, walnut kernels with the maca powder, protein powder and coconut flour into a high-speed blender ( I use the Vitamix since years and love it).
extra tip: Some high- speed blenders need a little extra fluid on the bottom so the motor doesn't spin and breaks, so start slow and work it up. If you have to use water in it, just add more coconut flour at the end.
2. Take the sticky dough out forming little balls with 2 spoons or with your hands. Roll them in the coconut chips. Put a walnut kernel on top if you like and place them on a tray.
3. Put the energy balls in the fridge for around 1-2 hours to give them just the right substance for that delicious bite.
Enjoy and share with your friend and loved ones - energy balls always make a good and healthy surprise!
