diy raw date nut energy balls adorablestDIY – Raw Date & Nut Energy Balls. Sometimes I feel like a sweet treat, but I also don’t like eating too much sugar, so today I made these … feeling inspired by Sam’s post yesterday of her version of yummy Raw Energy Balls. This is also my first recipe DIY 🙂

My measurements may not be too exact, as I just sort of ‘winged it’ as I went along, with what I had available in the cupboard, so feel free to experiment too! You want to end up with a fairly sticky mix, that holds together. Mix in a mini blender or similar.

You could also add carob button pieces (carob buttons come in a with sugar or sugar-free variety) 🙂diy raw date nut energy balls
