Dancers know how to snack, and are experts in munching down something really quick just before class or rehearsal. That’s why you’re going to love my Vanilla, Cashew & Fig Energy Balls, as they give a quick energy boost and are very satisfying too.

They’re just the perfect little snack in your dance bag!

Ingredients

1 cup (180g) dried figs
1 cup (140g) raw cashews
½ cup (60g) quick oats
2 tbsp cashew butter
½ tsp vanilla powder

 

Method

Soak dried figs in boiling water for 15 - 30mins.
Drain figs, remove stems, and slice in half.
Add figs and remaining ingredients to a food processor, process until all ingredients come together and forms a ball.
Roll into 12 even balls and store in an airtight container for up to a week in the refrigerator.

 

 Enjoy!
