coffee energy balls with buckwheat and coconut

DSCN2385 (2)

I saw a similar recipe a while ago, wrote the ingredients down and now can’t find the blogpost anymore- so sorry for not giving credits! I changed it a little as I was running low on cocoa so I decided to make them coffee flavoured instead – perfect for getting out of that little afternoon energy slump! They also freeze well.

1 cup of coconut shredded coconut
1 cup of sprouted buckwheat
1 teaspoon of cocoa powder (I would advise to add more to get them really chocolatey)
about 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of instant coffee, no added sugar (a little goes a long way)
a dash of maple sirup, amount depends on your preference for sweetness
pinch of vanilla powder
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
a pinch of salt
optional: a few cocao nibs

directions:

sprout the buckwheat for about a day (for example in a sprouting jar), until a little sprout is visible. Mix together all the ingredients but the maple sirup and pulse in the food processor until it has a crumbly consistency. Add the maple sirup (a little bit at first, add in more until it has the right sweetness for you). At this point of course feel free to add more coffee, vanilla, cinnamon. Roll the „dough“ into little balls and keep them in the fridge.
