Off the back of the launch of my new Wholeplus Fitness bar range, the recent weeks have had me thinking about and exploring all sorts of ‘fitness’ related snacks and recipe ideas. For example my green smoothie cheesecake was a bit of a revelation in super-healthy-tastyness!
So without waffling on any more, here is the ‘fit-food’ recipe for today. Super simple but certainly hits the spot. Enjoy!
Recipe: Buck-coconut bites
Makes 12 balls
½ cup dates
¼ coconut flakes
½ buckwheat groats (you can toast them first if you like but I didn't)
2 tbs peanut butter (or other nut butter) add a pinch of salt if not using salted nut butter.
Process the dates until sticky and coarsely ground. Add all remaining ingredients and pulse to combine. Add more nut butter if too dry and more coconut if too sticky.
Options: you could also add vanilla, spices, carob or cocoa, or nuts of seeds of choice to sub some of the buckwheat or coconut.
