Wanting a simple snack idea, you can’t go past balls or bites. I’ve done a few ball recipes now; Dried Fruit Balls (nut free), Choc & Fruit Protein Balls, Apricot Bites, and Chocolate Avocado Truffles. They are a favourite in our house, perfect for a healthy snack on the go and for the lunch box.
Today’s version I wanted to use a banana for something different. I had one that really was ripe and needed to be used up quick. So I came up with this little recipe.
2 cups almonds, raw
1/2 cup medjool dates
1 banana, ripe
Put the almonds and dates into the Thermomix bowl. Process for 5 secs/Turbo.
Add the banana and mix for another 5 secs/Turbo.
Spoon out 1 flat tablespoon of mixture and roll into a ball.
Refrigerate for 30 mins the enjoy!
Keep stored in the refrigerator
Only three ingredients and you have a healthy snack for the whole family. These balls have a flavour similar to banana bread (so my son says).
