Claire’s Christmas Amazeballs


Yields20 ServingsPrep Time20 minsTotal Time20 minsCategoryCooking MethodDiet, ,

The taste of Christmas in a ball! Enjoy my anti-inflammatory properties, a boost to your digestion from plentiful spices and a flood of antioxidants fulfilled by seasonal nuts and seeds. Packed with flavour, eat me to energise your body and warm your tastebuds. I weigh 30g, contain 4g of protein and provide you with approximately 160kcal.

 100 g cashew nuts
 50 g pumpkin seeds
 80 g pecan nuts
 50 g dried cranberries
 50 g gluten free rolled oats
 200 g medjool dates pitted
 Juice of half an unwaxed orange and zest
 Juice of a half unwaxed lemon and zest
 1 tbsp ground allspice or to taste!
 1 tbsp ground sweet cinnamon is to taste!
 Pinch of nutmeg


Mix into a blender until it is dough-like and roll into balls to suit your desired size - I recommend 30g for a fulfilling snack but you may want to do Amazeball minis - 15g - particularly if you are on the go or need them when pre/post-exercise.


Store in an air-tight sealed container


Best before 10 days for freshness of flavour or they can be frozen.


Tips - for a smoother ball blend the dry ingredients first and then add the dates last whilst the blender is going. Otherwise, enjoy the nutty seedy textures.

For decoration, you can add vegan white chocolate, cranberries and pumpkin seeds to make them look like Christmas puddings!
