Power Up Your Performance with Birthday Cake Energy Balls!

Are you a dancer who's always on the move? Do you need a burst of energy to keep up with your busy performance or competing season? Look no further, because we've got just the treat for you: Birthday Cake Flavoured Energy Balls! These little balls of goodness are not only delicious, but they'll also give you the fuel you need to dance your heart out!

 

Please note: this recipe is not suitable for those with allergies to nuts. 

 

Ingredients

  • ½ cup cashew butter (if you don't have this, roast  ½ cup cashews in the oven until golden and blend those babies till smooth!)
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  •  cup packed fine blanched almond flour
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons sprinkles
  • Extra sprinkles, for rolling

 

Instructions

Step One:

Add cashew butter, pure maple syrup and vanilla and almond extract to a medium bowl. Mix with a spatula until well combined and smooth.

Step Two:

Next add in almond flour and chia seeds. Mix well until combined and a dough begins to form. If dough is too wet, add another tablespoon or two of almond flour. Lastly, fold in sprinkles.

Step Three:

Use a tablespoon to grab dough and then roll into balls. You should get about 15 balls. If desired, you can roll each ball into sprinkles. Place energy bites on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place in the freezer for 30 minutes. Once they’ve hardened a bit, you can transfer to an airtight container and keep them in the freezer for up to 3 months. Balls can be enjoyed straight from the freezer. If they are too hard, let them sit at room temp for 5-10 minutes.

To store: Keep these energy bites in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 3 months. If you’re eating them straight from the freezer I’d recommend letting them soften up for about 5-10 minutes in the fridge or at room temp before doing so. I prefer the texture of these when they are stored in the freezer!

So, dancers, it's time to take your performance to the next level. Fuel your body with the sweetness and power of Birthday Cake Energy Balls. Let them be your secret weapon as you move your way to greatness in this busy performance season!
