Pumpkin energy balls
Deliciously sweet, these apricot and pumpkin energy balls are easy to make and are a tasty and healthy snack with a portion of veg added. Suitable for vegans.
- 200 g pumpkin or butternut squash puree
- 200 g dried apricots roughly chopped
- 100 g oats
- 100 g chopped nuts or seeds - I like almonds
- pinch salt optional
Place all the ingredients into your food processor and pulse until combined. You may need to scrape the sides down once or twice.
If you want your oats to be really broken down pulse them first.
Lightly oil your hands (not essential but stops the mixture sticking) and roll into balls.
Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to five days.
