Health Bites- A Healthy Thermomix Snack!

I'm a snacker I'll admit. And I find it hard to reach for something that gives me what I need: protein, fiber, good fats AND something tasty. So, yesterday I pulled out all of my seeds, nuts, dried fruit, superfood goodies and got creative!
This post includes 3 recipes that can be doubled, varied and devoured without guilt! I find that I am satisfied with one or two of my sized 'health bites'. You can roll the balls bigger or even press the mixture in a pan and cut as a slice (but you would definitely have to double the recipes then!)

25g sultanas
1tbsp pumpkin seeds
1tbsp sunflower seeds

Try using coconut oil in place of the honey or maple syrup in these recipes for a different flavour. If you can't find hemp seeds look at a health food shop in the non edible section (in Australia there is controversy over the legality of hemp for consumption). Here is some info on the benefits of these seeds: http://www.livingharvest.com/eating-hemp/benefits

Happy Thermomixing!
