Power Bites

makes approximately 35-40 balls

  • 250g peanut butter, crunchy or smooth (any other nut butter can be substituted if desired)
  • 250ml good quality honey
  • 360g old-fashioned oat flakes (fine cut)
  • 60g flax seeds
  • 250g dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa), chopped into small pieces
  • 250g total mix of your choice any of the following: nuts, seeds and/or soft dried fruit (chopped into small pieces if necessary, don’t forget to toast your nuts for extra flavour)

In a large bowl or the stand bowl of a mixer with a paddle attachment, combine peanut butter and honey until smooth. Gradually add oats and flax seeds, blending until well combined. Add chocolate bits and your personalised combo mixture and continue to stir until blended. With the help of a tablespoon, scoop out some mixture, enough to make a ball the size of a two franc coin and roll in your hands until smooth and there are no cracks. Repeat with remaining mixture. Place balls in mini muffin cups or on a cookie tray, making sure that there is a little space between each of them. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes. These will keep in an air-tight container for up to 3 weeks.
