- 1 Cup of Cashews
- 2 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil, Melted
- 1 Tablespoon of Almond Butter
- Pinch of Coarse Salt
- 1 Tablespoon of Spirulina
- Desiccated Coconut for Coating
There are loads of recipes out there for spirulina balls but I usually find that they don’t taste great or they’re loaded with excess sweetener to try and mask the taste of the spirulina. I’ve tried to come up with something to sort out both of these problems and these genuinely are delicious. Spirulina is a great source of protein and amino acids as well as being great for your immune system, which is especially important this time of year. These are a great way to incorporate it into your diet while treating yourself at the same time… yes they’re so good they taste like a treat!
Roast the cashews at 220’C for about 3 minutes until golden brown. Add them to the food processor and blend until you have a coarse flour, then add in the spirulina and salt and pulse to combine.
Add in the melted coconut oil and almond butter and blitz until combined. Use your hands to squeeze and roll the mixture tightly into balls.
Scatter some desiccated coconut out on a flat surface and roll the balls in it to coat.
Serve and enjoy!
