Like a recovering addict… 

…I may have fallen off the wagon and albeit I feel like shit and fart like a trouper it is so hard to stop eating rubbish when you start again. To not be a complete arse hole I do admit I probably still eat better than most but the feeling of failure can keep me up at night. Stupid I know but still a fact!

In order to gently get myself back on track and after eating all the sweets in the cupboard (not ones I even like hence usually easy to resist!) I made a healthier sweet treat!

Chocolate and hazelnut balls 

  • 15 Dates 
  • 2dl warm water to soak dates in
  • 150 grams hazelnuts – I toasted mine in the oven for 7min at 150 degrees C
  • 100 grams 70% dark chocolate 

Blitz the roasted hazelnuts to a very course flour. Purée the dates and water (pour off some water to start and add in if needed) and blitz chocolate to rough ground consistency (eat the bit that won’t blitz!!).

Mix it all together and make balls which you can keep in the freezer for when you need a sweet fix!
