The perfect snack. Healthy, simple and super quick to make but most importantly – really tasty! The figgy balls keep for two weeks, take a few to work & you can snack happy.
100g cashew nuts (unsalted please)
20g seeds (I tend to use Lidls lindseed mix – under £2)
100g dried figs (diced)
20g puffed brown rice
1 teaspoon cinnamon (great for your metabolism)
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons runny honey
Blitz 30g of the cashew nuts in a food processor until they resemble dust – pour onto separate plate. Chuck the left over cashews, seeds of your choice (or my fave Lidl mix!), diced dried figs & puffed brown rice into the processor and blitz until fine. Add the spices (cinnamon, ginger & nutmeg) and the honey – blitz again until the mixture binds (use your common sense with this one).
Next roll into bite sized balls – shake them about in the cashew dust you made at the beginning then in the fridge!
Done and dusted.
