Date and Seed Power Balls!

  On a resent trek in the north of Scotland, which I did with my family and a few friends (plus a happy dog) I knew a homemade energy boosting snack would be very much appreciated. Everyone in the group requested the recipe, so I took that as a good sign. These Energy ‘Power Balls!’ are rather delicious, and quite filling to, perfect for an in between meal snack, or a power boost when carrying heavy rucksacks and navigating unknown terrain in the wilderness! They store really well in an air tight container and keep for weeks in the fridge. You can also freeze them, and defrost as needed. I’m posting two recipes; one with peanut butter, and the other with a luxurious Danish Nougat. Its not easy to get your hands on in the UK, but it is delicious.. Its a household staple in Denmark, used mainly around Christmas, paired with marzipan…yum!  So I would say, use Nutella or something similar, if you don’t live in DK.   ______________________________________________ Power Balls no. 1 Makes 25   …
