My Vegan Superpowers’ Coconut-Vanilla Energy Balls

 On Wednesday I promised to share more of Alessandra Savoia’s vegan superpower secrets, and today I have the pleasure of sharing one of her fantastic superfood recipes to help make you feel tip-top even when you’re rushed off your feet. She says:

These tasty coconut vanilla-flavoured snacks are packed with maca, chia, and hemp to give you that superpower energy boost! These are a perfect pick-me-up for a busy day when you’re on-the-go. They also make a great pre-workout snack.

I made these bad-boys for my friend to try (she can’t get enough) and plan on stashing a few in my hand luggage when I head back to the US and A tomorrow. Chances are I’ll probably get stranded in Newark for another 12 hours, so best to be prepared and not have sort through all the detritus at the airport trying to find something vaguely edible.

 These really are delicious and keep you filled up for ages.

    These sound ideal for when i'm rushed off my feet at work but lacking in power. I will Definatly be making these on my next day off.

    Miss you and can’t wait for you to get back to the states so you can make some of these for me to try :) They sound pretty simple, just not sure my food processor will get the job done. Also would require me finding it….
