When digestive health is out of balance, it is common to see a rise in symptoms, or flare ups in allergic conditions including asthma and eczema. This is due to the important link between our gut health and the lungs (termed the gut-lung axis) and our gut health and the skin (termed the gut-skin axis).
These healthy treats are packed with fibre and nutrients to promote optimal digestive health.
Serving size: 1-2 balls daily. Adjust dose according to bowel motions.
½ cup pitted prunes
½ cup sultanas
½ cup plain almonds - raw or roasted (skin kept on)
½ cup desiccated coconut
1 tablespoon cacao powder
¼ cup ground flaxseed (freshly ground is best)
Add all ingredients into a food processor or high speed blender and blend until the ingredients start to come together into a sticky dough. Shape into small balls and roll in extra coconut. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
Warning: over consumption may have a laxative effect.
For those with nut allergies: substitute the almonds with sesame seeds, sunflower seeds or a mixture of both.
These are a great addition to school lunchboxes!
