Power House Bites

I hummed eating these, and so I know they're not only yum but my body knows they're nutritious too - and of course they are, being full of nuts and seeds ;-) If you don't mind getting your hands a little dirty, these are great for quick energy, and you can take them anywhere. If I make many, I keep them in a container in the fridge but they are fine in a small bag in a lunch box.
Prepared by:
Recipe type: energy snack
Cuisine: vegan, raw
Serves: 50
You need
  • 5 dates
  • ½ cup of (activated) almonds
  • ½ cup of (activated) hazelnuts
  • ½ cup of flax seeds (I used golden seeds, they taste a tad milder)
  • ½ cup of pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup of activated buckwheat (they are nice and crisp)
  • 2 tbsp molasses
  • 3 tbsp black tahini (brown will do fine too)
  • zest of ½ (large) lemon, or more to taste
To do
  1. In your food processor, roughly grind the hardest nuts first: almonds and hazelnuts
  2. when rather fine, add the flax seeds and pumpkin seeds, and run machine again
  3. when all is incorporated, add buckwheat, molasses and lemon zest, mix again
  4. the tahini is the glue, so add first 2 table spoons, and see if you need more; take a table spoon of the mixture and squeeze it into a ball. If it doesn't hold together well, add some more tahini.
  5. Do taste while you are mixing, you may want more lemon zest or not. You should be able to pick up a hint of lemony tartness :-)
