Here are the resources discussed during our lunch and learn (click to download):

  1. Healthy Plate handout
  2. Smoothie Recipe handout (with chia pudding and avocado pudding recipe links)
  3. Healthy Snack handout (with granola and energy ball recipes)

The energy ball recipe used for today’s snacks differs from the recipe included in the Healthy Snack handout.  Here is the recipe for what you tried today:

– 2 1/2 cups walnuts
– 1 3/4 cups coconut flour
– 30 medium pitted dates (if not pitted, soak for 2 hours in cold water prior to using in order to remove pits easily after draining water off; this allows the dates to be softer and able to be blended easier, and keeps balls together better)
– 1/4 cup cocoa powder
– 1/2 tsp sea salt
– 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
– hemp hearts (optional)
Makes ~40 balls

1) Ensure all pits are removed from dates (and water drained off, if applicable)
2) Blend walnuts and coconut flour together in a food processor
3) Add in softened dates, cocoa, sea salt, and cinnamon and blend until smooth (or desired consistency)
4) Roll into small ~1″ balls
5) Roll balls in hemp hearts, chopped nuts of your choice, coconut flakes, etc to garnish
6) Place on baking sheet in freezer to harden prior to transferring to storage container (to prevent balls from sticking together).  Can store in fridge or freezer.
