Healthy Chocolate Orange Snacks


Over exam period I seen myself reaching for unhealthy snacks at every possible moment, so my flatmate and I decided to make some more healthier treats to nibble on whilst revising. We got this recipe out of Madeleine Shaw's new book and altered it slightly to suit us. We found it super quick and easy to make (after we remembered to add the banana - that helps stick the mixture together) and they honestly taste amazing!

Ingredients:

1 mashed banana
170g oats
3 tbsp coco powder
2 tbsp of honey
250g Mejool dates
A pinch of salt
Zest of an orange

Method:

1. Place the oats in a blender and grind until they form a flour texture
2. Add the dates, coco powder and salt in with the oats and blend everything together
3. Place all the mixture in a bowl, add the honey and banana and mix all together
4. Grate the orange zest and mix 2/3 of it into the mixture
5. Mould the mixtures into balls and roll them in the rest of the orange zest
6. EAT

They can be kept in the fridge and enjoyed throughout the week.

I promise you will not be disappointed by these, they are so yummy!
