Remember the Cocoa, cashew and date snack bars I posted back in December? Well that recipe is back today but in a new form! Meet the ever so popular snack ball. Snack balls seem to be everywhere at the moment. From brands like Bounce Ball to homemade creations, they seem to be a pretty popular workout snack or something to battle those sweet cravings. Mine are incredibly simply and use the same recipe as my bars (so check out that post if you want to know how to make these). Instead of squishing the mixture down into a pan, roll it up and create this tasty little morsels.

The great thing about these is that you can make them using pretty much anything and all you have to do is blend the ingredients together. Cashews, dates and cocoa. Done. Or maybe you're a nut butter fan? Try peanut butter, almonds and a little bit of vanilla extract. Whizz it up and there you go. Or keep it simple with just almonds and dates.

The outside can be just as personalised as the goodness inside. Coat with oats, seeds, a ganache or coconut to add a little something extra to these tasty treats. These are incredibly simple to make and will definitely hit the spot when you're feeling peckish for an afternoon snack.

What combinations would you use or have you made these before? I'd love to know your suggestions so tweet me @afloralcrown and let me know your recommendations!
