Preparation

1. Chop the nuts very finely.

2. Mash or puree the bananas.

3. Mix the bananas with the baobab and match powder. Mix the agave throughout. (The baobab has a fairly sour taste).

 

 

4. Roll a ball of around 25 g (large tbs) in the palm of your hand, and then roll this in the dish of raw cocoa.

5. Put the balls in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours before eating. You can keep them for around 4 days like this.

 

Tip: Where superfood powders are concerned, the sky’s the limit! How does a little acai powder sound, or maybe some maca? It just depends on what your particular needs are and what you like to eat!
