Shop Price Increases from 6th April Read More...
Travel cards are going up to £2 (currently £1.99) from 6th April due to increase in fees. All other products will remain the same price. This is the first product price increase we have made since we started 2 years ago.

Due to Royal Mail postage increases and increase in processing fees, our postage and packing cost will also be increasing from 6th April, all UK and international charges will increase by 10p (e.g UK postage between 1 and 6 travel cards will increase from £1 to £1.10, large letters (orders for wristbands, pens etc) will go from £1.30 to £1.40, small parcels (full sets of travel cards, multiple tote bags) will go from £4.20 to £4.30)

I have a very sweet tooth so I am always looking for ways to curb the cravings for chocolate. These energy balls are naturally gluten free, accidentally vegan, packed with nutrients, are refined sugar free and need no cooking. They are a more healthy alternative to chocolate and sweets and really hit the spot.

Method

1. Pit the dates and roughly chop, throw into a food processor and blitz for a couple of minutes.

2. Add all the other ingredients to the food processor (except the 10g of desiccated coconut needed for rolling) and blitz again for another minute or two, it should combine well and end up with almost one ball of the mix.

3. Break the mix into 12 pieces and roll into balls. Roll the balls in the 10g of desiccated coconut reserved earlier.
