ENERGY OAT BALLS

My lovely friend Matty is a chef, food lover and fellow mental health advocate. We know each other through work and we had a lightbulb moment to partner up on a recipe idea. 

The brief? Something vegan, quick, and energy-boosting before or after a yoga class. 

… And he delivered!

Matty has created something fully-vegan, deliciously moreish and so easy to make! Go check out this guy’s Instagram profile – he’s brilliant and really making a name for himself. Thank you Matty for a great recipe.

Equipment

  • Freestanding mixer (optional)
  • Non-stick tray
  • Baking paper

Ingredients
  

  • 300 g porridge oats
  • 150 g extra virgin coconut oil
  • 180 g icing sugar check it's vegan
  • 40 g cacao powder
  • 100 ml warm coffee
  • 50 g dark chocolate 70% or more
  • 50 g desiccated coconut or chopped nuts

Instructions
 

  • Melt the coconut oil if not already liquified. Then combine the oats, coconut oil, icing sugar and cacao powder using either your paddle beater on your mixer or simply a wooden spoon.
  • Slowly incorporate the coffee and beat/stir together to form a firm dough.
  • Line a tray with baking paper and then spread the mixture onto the tray and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  • Once chilled, weigh into 40g chunks. After the mixture is divided, roll each one into balls and refrigerate to firm up (about 20 minutes).
  • As they chill, slowly melt the chocolate over a saucepan of water or in the microwave, stirring regularly.
  • Decorate your chilled balls by drizzling with the chocolate and topping with the coconut or nuts.
