Raw Cacao Nut Balls with Mesquite

You must try this variation on my Nut Ball Treats theme. Not only do they taste sensational with a hint of caramel but the Mesquite powder adds a lot of extra nutrients.

Mesquite has been used as a staple food by native American desert dwellers for thousands of years. It is high in protein and has a great mineral profile with significant quantities of calcium and magnesium. It also contains the amino acid, lysine and with a low GI of 25 helps maintain stable blood sugar levels.

Nut Balls with Mesquite

Ingredients:
230gm raw cashews
130gm raw almonds
35gm Cacao powder
5gm Mesquite powder

1tsp vanilla essence
Container of Desiccated Coconut

Method:
Place all ingredients in Thermomix, high powered blender or food processor and grind at high speed for 45 seconds
Form into balls and roll in desiccated coconut
