If you caught my recent post (and video!) on the 7 simple diet changes I’m making to create healthy habits in 2017, you’ll recall my promise to share my favourite paleo and gluten free no bake energy balls recipe for a healthy and easy power snack you can make at home. The possibilities are literally endless when it comes to creating different types of flavours for energy balls, but one of my personal favourites that I turn to over and over is raw spirulina balls. This is a recipe I found in Get The Glow by U.K.-based healthy foodie and yogi, Madeleine Shaw, a person and cookbook I discovered while shopping in Glasgow when I was there to shoot new episodes of Style Jaunt with FLARE and Air Transat.

If you’re interested in trying out this recipe for yourself, I would definitely recommend it! I mean, obviously – I’m blogging it about it right now. Once you have all of the ingredients on hand it is super easy to make and really only involves throwing everything into a food processor or high powered blender. Here’s how to make my favourite gluten free no bake energy balls with spirulina!

In case you are new to Spirulina, it ‘is a total superfood, loaded with beta-carotene, iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin B complex and chlorophyll‘ as Madeleine shares in her book (yes, I’m lazy and totally happy to rely on her research here). It is quite a potent taste that can be rather overwhelming on its own (FYI it is a type algae so can be a bit like eating powdered seaweed), but, thankfully with this recipe you can enjoy all of its superfood benefits while masking its taste with help from lovely ingredients such as the dates and cinnamon to help make it sweet, but still very healthy.

These snacks are perfect before or after the gym, or for when you’re hungry for a little snack or a sweet treat without the guilt!

Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!!
