We’ve been bitten by the Great British Bake Off bug! Fancy whipping up a tasty treat that’s not only easy to make but also has some skin-saving super foods in it? Well look no further, your ‘Balanced Bake’ is right here.
These yummy Spiced Cacao Energy Balls are filled with skin boosting vitamins. Plus with only one piece of equipment needed to blitz them together, they couldn’t be easier! Packed with skin-beneficial properties, keep them to hand for a mid-afternoon boost that your skin will thank you for!

Pecans – A great source of vitamin E, an antioxidant widely recognised for its anti-inflammatory properties, as well as helping protect the skin from environmental pollution.
Walnuts – Another source of vitamin E, vital for healthy hair and glowing skin. You’ll find Walnut Shell Powder in our Radiance Face Mask its our natural alternative to micro-beads.
Almonds – A rich source of protein that boosts collagen production, keeping skin smooth and elastic.
Oats – Low on the glycemic index oats can help with inflammation and acne. Oat Powder is a key ingredient in our Cleanse & Smooth Face Balm.
Dates – Nature’s caramel. A naturally super-sweet alternative to refined or processed sugars – sure to put a smile on your face!
Cacao – A powerful antioxidant and good source of sulphur for maintaining healthy skin, hair and nails. You’ll find Cocoa Butters in many of our products including our Lip Quench Balm.

To make about 20 Energy Balls you will need…
• 1 cup pitted dates
• 2/3 cup raw almonds
• 2/3 cup mixed pecans/walnuts
• 2 tbsp oats
• 1 tbsp linseeds (flaxseeds)
• 1 tbsp raw cacao powder
• 1 tsp ground cinnamon
• 1 tsp maple syrup
• Pinch of salt
• 3 tbsp water (add a  tbsp at a time – use more/less depending on how juicy your dates are!)
• Food processor for mixing

Method
1. Place all the ingredients in a good food processor and blitz until the mixture starts to clump together.
2. Squeeze and roll the mixture into about 20 balls using the palms of your hands.
3. Place the balls into a sealed lunchbox and freeze for an hour or so to firm up.
4. After an hour remove from the fridge and enjoy. Store in your sealed lunchbox and keep in the fridge for up to a week.

Enjoy!
