Adaptogenic brownie balls

Yes, perfect tasty balls to take before or after a training sessions (or any other time of the day). and I have added some Om Organic Mushroom Nutrition Cordyceps for a boost.

I like to make sure we have some healthy snacks around and homemade is so much better in my opinion because you can adapt it to your taste (change the nuts, add some other ingredients, etc). I have been meaning to make these balls for ages but with the holidays and everything I just didn't have the time or energy. Also, I had so much food left over from Xmas and New Year that I simply couldn't bear to add anything else in my already overfull fridge!

I added some adaptogenic mushrooms powder to add a little pep to my super food balls. Originally discovered by Tibetan herdsman at high altitudes, Cordyceps optimises oxygen uptake and delivery to increase vitality and endurance. Awaken energy, improve cardio and ignite your inner strength.

Upgraded Chocolate Powder is the highest quality chocolate product. Eating dark chocolate has tons of benefits (yeah!). People who eat high quality chocolate have lower markers of inflammation than those who eat regular chocolate. Cacao helps to protect the cells from oxidative stress and protect the body from free radicals. All of this is music to my ears.

Ingredients (make 12 large balls)
100g cashews
150g pitted dates soaked in boiling water for 5-10 minutes
25g Bulletproof Raw Chocolate Powder
1 tablespoon Bulletproof Upgraded XCT Oil
2 pinches Himalayan Salt Fine Grade
1 tablespoon Om Organic Cordyceps (don't worry you wont taste it)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Optimal to coat your balls: crushed cashews or cacao powder

Directions: Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and blends until it forms a sticky dough. Roll the ball in slightly wet hands and coat in either cacao or cashews and store in a air tight container for up to 10 days.
