These energy balls are such a great nut free alternative. They are not too sweet and roasted sunflower seeds adds a lovely crunch to every bite.

To make 20 – 25 balls you’ll need:

1 cup of sunflower seeds

1/2 cup of oats

1, 1/2 cups of dried unsulphured apricots

3 tbsp raw cocoa powder

3 tsp cinnamon

Pre-heat the oven to 180C and roast sunflower seeds for 10 mins or until they start to turn golden brown. Take out of the oven and leave to cool for 30 mins.

Next blitz all ingredients in a food processor for about 3 mins until sunflower seeds start to release its oils and the mix starts to form a sticky dough.

Roll the mix into balls and enjoy! Keep your energy balls in an airtight container in the fridge. They will stay fresh for about 2 weeks.
