Dodgy Balls

Yep – I made dodgy balls last night.

Since it’s been cold I seem to want to shove everything in sight in my face. I am hungry ALL the time.

So, I thought I would make lots of healthy snacks!

For instance date and apricot bliss balls.

I made them, but there were all these spiky pieces in them and I couldn’t work out if that was normal or not.

The recipe called for 100g of sunflower seeds and after blending them that’s what was making the mixture so spiky.

Confused, I offered one to my flatmate, Scott. He looked at me weird and then said ‘why did you put the sunflower shells in the mixture?’

Totally confused I asked him what he meant and he explained that sunflower seeds actually sit inside a shell and that I had put the shell in too. At that moment I burst out laughing.

You see, I don’t have much experience with sunflower seeds. I found a packet in the supermarket and in my head that was that. I didn’t realise they had shells! Why do they even sell them in the shells anyway? No wonder I was confused.

I couldn’t stop laughing. My attempt at making good, raw, healthy food was not going so well. So I threw them in the bin, opened a block of chocolate and ate that instead!


My new breakfast obession

So I’ve many friends on the get fit and healthy train at the moment and I saw a few of then were making these paleo pancakes so I thought I would give it a go!

My recipe isn’t paleo but it’s still healthy and delish. Serving is for one.

– 1 mashed banana
– 2 beaten eggs
– some chopped dates
– pinch of cinnamon

Mix it all up and cook on an oiled (coconut if possible) fry pan for a few mins.

Ta daaaa!!

I’m also going to try it with some apple or almond milk. I’m sure there are heaps of great additions you could throw in.

Quick, healthy and yum. Gets my tick!
