NATIVE EATING: KAKADU PLUM ENERGY BALLS

NATIVE EATING: KAKADU PLUM ENERGY BALLS
A delicious little snack to have while enjoying a cup of tea or coffee, these vitamin C packed treats, made with Kakadu plum and ginger are a perfect healthy alternative to munch on.
Kakadu plum is an Australian native plant, containing the highest recorded levels of vitamin C in the world - more than 50 times that of oranges, generating enormous potential for its use in both dietary supplements and personal care products.  

The Kakadu plum powder gives these snacks a lovely tangy flavour which complements the ginger perfectly.

Ingredients
  • 1 packed cup medjool dates - 220 grams, or about 11-12 dates
  • 1 and 1/2 cups cashews (raw, unsalted) - about 200 grams
  • 1/2 cup quinoa flakes
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 5 tsp Kakadu plum powder from Warndu 
  • 2-3 tsp ground ginger - adjust according to taste
  • 3/4 cup desiccated coconut OR 1/2 cup sesame seeds, OR a mix, for coating the balls

Instructions

  1. Remove the pits from the medjool dates and place in a food processor along with the cashews.  Process so the dates and cashews break up into a rough sticky crumb.

  2. Add the quinoa flakes, cacao powder, ginger and Kakadu plum powder.  Continue to process until the mixture forms a sticky dough.  It will probably start to come together as one big ball in the food processor.

  3. Scoop out heaped teaspoons of the mixture and roll into a ball.  Roll in coconut or sesame seeds to coat.  Repeat with remaining mixture.

  4. Pop the energy balls in the fridge, where they will firm up a bit.  Keep them stored in the fridge - they should last for a few weeks.  Place them in the freezer if you would like them to last a bit longer!
