Oh, how I love these energy balls. Sweet, chocolatey, gooey but crunchy, and oh so yummy. I've been playing about with different flavour combinations but this is definitely my favourite. Only problem is, they disappear too fast. Made with slow releasing energy from the oats and packed with protein from the cashews, cacao and tahini, mixed with these beautiful dates, makes for a perfectly balanced snack. They are exactly what's needed when the mid afternoon slump hits, powering you through the rest of your day. Make a batch of these at the weekend to snack on throughout the week and you'll have no need, and no interest of grabbing any other refined, sugar laden snack. Makes approx 20 balls.
