3 recipe ideas for a healthy snack
A concept that comes from elsewhere and that clearly means "energy ball". These contain no animal matter and are therefore perfect for a healthy snack if the child suffers from allergies. They are quick to make and do not require baking. Moreover, you can make them with the children to share a real moment of complicity. For about 12 balls, you will need :
- 5 cl of water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 110 g unsalted cashews
- 100 g of dates
- 60 g of chocolate chips
First, pour all the ingredients into the bowl of a blender (except for some of the chocolate) and blend.
Once the ingredients are mixed, you will obtain a dough. Start by forming round balls between the palms of your hands. Then roll part of the balls in the remaining grated chocolate. Finally, place the balls on a square and let harden in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
For even more deliciousness, you can also add peanut butter or cinnamon powder to the mixture. Or roll the balls in chia seeds, coconut or grated pistachio.
