These are originally protein balls (size of a walnut) – which is really a better size shape to eat:

In your thermamix or any other strong blender, pulse the following ingredients to medium or fine (I prefer medium) texture:

70 g Organic Coconut Oil

20 g Shredded Coconut

50 g Macademia nuts

70 g Almonds (activated or raw)

2 tbsp. Protein Powder (good quality)

20 g Cranberries

4 pc Chrystalized ginger (or 1 cm healthy fresh) – optional

50 g Dates

70 g Cashew nuts

Make sure the texture is fine enough to easily roll into balls or hearts. I often push a rash almond into the middle of the ball to add a crunchy bit for great taste and surprise – like life itself. You can substitute nuts to your liking, leave one type of nut or the shredded coconut away if you don’t like it, experiment with different protein powders, change coconut oil for cocoa butter etc. BE creative! Have fun!

Tip: Some people like or need to take supplements, powders, liquids etc….I once added shell-flour (which I used to forget to ‘eat’) to the mixture, which didn’t affect the taste at all. I suggest, only to add taste-less supplements.

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
