Banana, Almond Butter & Cacao Energy Bites


1 banana
140g/5oz almonds
45g/1.5oz pitted dates
3tsp. cacao powder
125g/4.5oz almond butter (or any other type of nut butter)
Optional toppings: chopped hazelnuts, blueberry powder, ground almonds, chia seeds.


Place the almonds in your food processor and pulse until finely ground.
Add the rest of the truffle ingredients to the food processor and pulse until you reach a thick paste consistency.
Roll 1 teaspoon of the mixture at a time into small balls then roll them in your choice of toppings.
Freeze for 1 hour.
Before consuming, let the bites defrost at room temperature for around 10 minutes.


These easy to make, no-bake truffle treats are so delicious and full of nutrition. They make the perfect after dinner sweet treat, and the best part about this recipe is they keep in the freezer so you can just take them out as and when you need them.

We love the combination of bananas and almonds, we discovered it recently while making my new ice-cream recipe, so this sweet snack has soon become a new favourite of ours.

The ingredients in this recipe are all wholesome and all have anti-aging benefits, so if you’re looking to turn back the clock this is a fail safe as it’s full of magnesium (nuts, seeds and banana) probiotics (cacao) and polyphenols (cacao).

If you find it difficult to blend the dates in your food processor a good tip is to soak them in hot water for a few minutes first which should soften them.
