This week, a focus on some healthier options that are easy to prepare and vanish very quickly in our house. I could never seem to make enough of these protein balls for the salon.
Ingredients:225gms self raising flour225mls boiling water160gms light brown sugar120gms chopped pitted dates55gms chopped walnuts55gms unsalted butter (softened)1tsp bicarbonate of soda1tsp ground mixed spice1 egg (beaten)
Method:Preheat oven to 150⁰C
Place the dates, butter and bicarbonate of soda in a bowl and pour over the boiling water. Mix gently and then leave to cool. Prepare a 2lb loaf tin by greasing and lining with parchment paper.
In a separate bowl, place the walnuts & sugar, and sift in the flour. Mix to combine and then add to the cooled date mixture along with the beaten egg. Mix well and then transfer to the prepared tin.
Bake for appx 65-75 mins. A skewer inserted should come out clean. Once ready take out the oven, and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
