Nutty Superfood Spirulina balls that fill a large gap and keep you running at full strength! This recipe has Nuts, Dates and Goji Berries as a base before being super charged with the green wonder powder that is Spirulina. These are easy to make and require very little time. They also contain heaps of fantastic Pistachio Nuts which are always a firm favourite. You might have to hide these balls after you've made them or they won't last very long.

Benefits

There isn't one ingredient that doesn't give a whole lot of energy in these energy balls. Firstly the Nuts give their protein and mineral content whilst the Goji Berries add Vitamin C for a little antioxidant boost. Dates have long been known for their long sustained energy release properties and so these energy balls are set to be a very healthy snack. The addition of the Spirulina gives this nutty energy ball recipe the tag of super powers since Spirulina is high in Protein, Fibre, Vitamin E, B2, B3, B6, B12, Potassium, Calcium, Iron and Zinc. These all contribute to a healthy immune and nervous system and bring the body to peak performance.
