These zesty pumpkin seed bites are about to become your favourite snack! They literally taste like little cake popsicles, soft melt in your mouth pumpkin goodness & just the right amount of sweetness. With a hint of zesty orange flavour and a slight kick from the matcha powder for a great energy boost!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 C Cashews
  • 1/3 C Pumpkin Seeds
  • 1/4 C Dried Dates
  • 1/4 C Coconut Flakes
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tsp Just Matcha Culinary Matcha 
  • 1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 1 Tbsp Zest of Orange
  • 1 Tbsp Orange Juice
  • Pinch of salt

  • For coating:

    Desiccated coconut (you can grind coconut flakes for the same texture) and orange zest.

    Directions:

    Add the cashews and pumpkin seeds to your OmniBlend jug & pulse into fine crumbs. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until well combined.
    Use a tablespoon to scoop the mixture and roll into balls.

    Roll each ball in a mixture of coconut and orange zest and place the balls in the fridge for half an hour to set and enjoy!

    For this recipe we used the OmniBlend I - 2ltr Pro. Both the OmniBlend I and V have a pulse function for a quick chop. This function is ideal for grinding nuts: simply pulse a few times until you've reached the desired consistency. For grinding nuts and seeds to a flour, blend on high speed. The 2ltr jug is recommended for this use as it has a narrow base, which is ideal for grinding dry ingredients.
