If you have a little time, batch cooking a healthy snack can be a great way to hit the ground running into a healthy week. These little balls of goodness are quick and easy to make and great to carry around with you if you’re in need of a mid morning energy boost and want to avoid the office vending machine. 

Made with only a few ingredients; give them a go and be sure to let us know what you think.

Ingredients
Makes 12

100g Dried Mango
250g Almonds
150g Dessicated Coconut
Juice of ½ Lime
3 Inches of Fresh Ginger

Method:
Soak the dried mango in boiling water for 5 – 10 minutes until it softens.
Add the almonds to a blender/ food processor and blitz until ground.
Pour in 100g of the dessicated coconut (leaving the remaining 50g for coating).
Blitz again until coconut and almond mixture combines.
Drain the dried mango and then gradually add it to the blender. Squeeze over the lime and grate in the fresh ginger. Blitz until smooth.
Spoon the mixture out of the blender onto a plate and roll into bite size balls.
Coat the balls in the remaining coconut.
Refrigerate in an airtight box overnight to set.
Enjoy!
