World Vegan Day
As it’s World Vegan Day we thought we would share a couple of vegan snacks that are a great option whilst training. Enjoy.
Cranberry and quinoa energy balls (gluten-free)
1 cup (120g) dried cranberries
1 cup (150g) dried raisins
1 tsp ground vanilla beans
1 1/2 cups puffed quinoa
1 tbsp coconut oil, as required
Blitz cranberries, raisins and vanilla beans in a food processor until mixture starts to come together (some chunks are okay!).
Place cranberry mixture in a medium sized bowl and add quinoa and coconut oil as needed.
Roll mixture into approximately 15 balls.
Refrigerate or enjoy immediately!
Oat and Raisin Cookies
1 cup (90g) gluten-free oats
1 cup (150g) golden raisins
1 cup (93g) shredded coconut
2 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup (125ml) coconut milk
Preheat oven to 170 degrees Celsius and line a baking tray.
Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
Using your hands, form balls and place them on the prepared tray (the mixture will be running, so be careful).
Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes, or until cookies are brown and firm to the touch.
Leave to cool and enjoy!
