Strawberry – coconut cheesecake energy balls

These strawberry cheesecake energy balls are a lovely snack for when you need a bit of a boost for the day.

You’ll only need 4 ingredients & 5 mins to make these.

To make 15 energy balls you’ll need:

2 cups of cashews

1 cup freeze dried strawberries

2/3 cup of desiccated coconut

7 tbsp maple syrup

Garnish

1/2 cup of desiccated coconut

Simply whizz all base ingredients in a food processor until a crumbly & sticky dough forms. Be careful not to over-blend it as the nuts will start to break down and form a smooth paste if left too long.

Roll the dough into bite size balls and cover with coconut flakes.

Lazy mini cinnamon rolls


There's nothing I love more than a smell of freshly baked cinnamon rolls. Deliciously sweet and fluffy, these lovelies will satisfy even the fussiest eater. And the best of all – they take less than 5mins to prep!

To make 20 mini cinnamon rolls you'll need:

1 pack of ready rolled puff pastry
3 tbsp sugar (I used coconut sugar)
2 tbsp cinnamon
3 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tbsp honey

Preheat the oven to 180C.

Start off by rolling out the puff pastry. Set aside.
Melt the butter, add sugar and cinnamon to the butter. Spread the butter & cinnamon mix across the pastry, ensuring every corner and edge is well covered.

Roll the pastry lengthwise and cut into 20 mini rolls. Reuse the baking paper supplied with the puff pastry and line mini rolls with a small distance from each other.

Garnish with a small dash of honey and pop in the oven for 20mins. Voila! Enjoy with some cold milk for an ultimate afternoon treat.
