TIGERNUT ENERGY BALLS

Today I really want to introduce you to my favourite treat - Tigernut Energy Balls. They are vegan, paleo, sugar-free, healthy and so very good. Once you´ve started to eat them you cannot stop. I often double the recipe because my family loves them as well.


The main part is the Superfood grounded tigernut. I purchase it in the whole food shop here in Germany. The flour is sweet like almonds and I often sprinkle it on my muesli in the morning because the taste is just lovely and looks like this.

Tigernut flour is gluten-free, non-allergic, low in calories and fat, and counts as a great source of potassium, iron, vitamin E, and unsaturated fatty acids.If you like to find out more about tigernuts, here is a wonderful article in "Vogue" from Sept. 2016

For the recipe you need no more than five ingredients and the balls are done in a flash.

100g grounded tigernuts

100g medjool dates

100ml water

1/4 tsp vanilla

cocoa

Get the pits out of the dates first. Put the dates, tigernut flour, water and vanilla into a blender and mix it until you get a smooth dough. Make balls out of the dough the size you prefer and roll the balls in cocoa. (You can also dust the balls with cocoa before serving if you like that better). Store the energy balls in the fridge (I am sure, they won´t be long in there).
Have fun mixing, rolling and enjoying as well,
XXOOXX,
