Coffee & Walnut Cake Energy Balls
I do like to make a batch of energy bites every now and again. They make such a nice sweet snack, perfect for anyone like me with a sweet tooth, as a couple of these really help to keep you satiated after lunch or dinner!
It’s amazing how versatile they are – you can experiment with using different nuts, seeds, spices, dried fruits, chocolate, citrus fruit zests etc, so the combinations are infinite! I had the idea to try making these energy bites a few weeks ago when we tried a vegan coffee and walnut cake at a café and wanted to capture the flavours of the cake but in a much simpler, quicker and healthier form that is energy bites (aka bliss balls). They’re made of just four ingredients and includes walnuts, so they’re a great vegan source of omega-3 – essential fatty acids that have been shown to decrease risk of cardiovascular disease and other inflammatory diseases.
