Nutty energy bites
These nutty energy bites have a sweetness to them without being overpowering, and a little square or ball will keep you nice and full. 

100g flaked or blanched almonds

50g Brazil nuts

50g cashew nuts

3 tbsp pumpkin seeds

50g goji berries, very finely chopped

100g desiccated coconut

Pinch of sea salt

4 tbsp coconut oil

4 tbsp honey

4 tbsp peanut butter (no added sugar or salt)

1 tsp vanilla extract

Place the almonds in a food processor with the Brazil nuts, cashew nuts and pumpkin seeds and pulse until finely chopped. 

Don't pulse for too long - you don't want the nuts to turn to a paste.

Tip them into a bowl and stir in the goji berries with half of the desiccated coconut and a pinch of sea salt.

Melt the coconut oil in a pan over a low heat. Once it has melted, remove from the heat and stir in the honey, peanut butter and vanilla extract. 

Mix well in the pan using a whisk or a fork. 

Pour this over the nut mixture and stir together until it's all evenly combined. 

Leave to harden in the fridge for 1-2 hours. 

Use a small ice-cream scoop to shape the mixture into balls. 

Sprinkle over the remaining desiccated coconut or roll each ball in it. 

Place back in the fridge for 2-3 hours to firm up. 

Serve straight from the fridge.
