Recipe: Fig and Cashew Energy Balls

Sugar Free Baking is the new cookbook by Carolyn Hartz and it allows for guilt free sweet treats. It doesn’t use hidden or everyday sugars like agave, honey or rice malt syrup; it does use 100% natural ingredients.

Sweets are my kryptonite so I think Sugar Free Baking may just become an important part of my recipe collection. We are pleased to be able to share some of the recipes with our readers.

Fig and Cashew Energy Balls
Makes 18

100g almond meal
130g raw cashews
4 dried figs, chopped

50g dried goji berries

Desiccated coconut for coating


Process all ingredients except the goji berries in a food processor, until smooth.

Mix in the goji berries and shape into 18 walnut sized balls. Roll the balls in the coconut and store in the fridge.
