Cashew nut and Oats Energy Balls


I love cashewnuts, they are one of my favorite nuts, I can eat them raw, roasted, fried  in stirfries and also in for breakfast. They have a lower fat content than most nuts and are high in Magnesium which is vital for healthy bones.


To encourage my family to eat some thing for breakfast , especially the youngsters I make these delicious Cashew nut and Oats energy bars with Mehdool dates. They have no added sugar and taste absolutely divine.

  5. Cashews are my favourite nut to add to savoury dishes and I usually use them in raw treats since they're easier to blend. These energy balls are exactly the kind of thing I like to snack on when I'm feeling peckish in the afternoon. They sound so yum! :D
