C A S H E W & B a r b E r y P R O T E I N B o m B E s
One day a week, I allocate as prep day, a session abuzz to get ready for the week ahead.
You know the drill.
Blitz the garlic paste.
Bake good bread.
And the most recent addition, prep these energy balls.
My days, they are TASTY
And a great way to give not-so-great-for-you sweet treats (like, ahem, those giant chocolate buttons), the swerve for a healthier option.
Plus a great example of using the Thermomix with your own recipes.
Not only does Thermomix have amazing guided recipes via Cookidoo, you can also use it *simply as a multipurpose tool - all your kit in one place.
In this case,
to do the washing up (the magic of auto-clean)
Let’s get to it!
150g cashew nuts
20g dedicated coconut
140g dried apricots
35g dried barberries
1 tbsp protein powder (I love @naturya cacao maca)
1 tbsp bee pollen
1 tsp vanilla paste
Good pinch o’ salt , (my fave, @halenmon )
2 tbsp freshly boiled water
40g sesame seeds to roll
‘Turbo’ the cashew nuts to fine chop 2-3 seconds
Using Scale function, weigh in coconut, apricots, barberries.
Measure in bee pollen, vanilla, protein powder & salt.
Turbo blitz for 2 seconds.
Add just boiled water & turbo another couple of seconds - you wanna keep a bit of texture over paste.
Roll into cute boules, tossing in a sesame coat as you go.
I made 14.
And ate two.
Chill to set in your fridge
