PECAN PIE ENERGY BALLS
Homemade energy balls are easier to whizz up than you think. This recipe makes 10-12 and they keep in the fridge for up to five days. Wrap a couple up and pop them in your belt for long runs. They're easy to digest on the go and tastier than gels. 80g dried apricots 100g toasted pecans 4 tbsp gluten free oats ½ tsp cinnamon ¼ tsp ginger (ground) ¼ tsp cloves ¼ tsp nutmeg 4 dates
1 tbsp chia seeds 1 tbsp flax seeds
1/ Toast the pecans, then add to a food processor. Pulse for a few seconds, then add all the dry ingredients.
2/ Mix until combined and add the dried apricots and dates. Pulse together until you get a sticky dough.
3/ On a plate, mix the chia and flax seeds together. Roll into 10 balls, then roll the balls in the seed mixture and refrigerate.
