These are a delicious variation on the Nut and Berry Quinoa squares I created for Spinneys Food magazine. Absolutely packed full of energy from nutritious nuts and seeds with sweet dried figs for divine chewiness!
It’s literally a case of mixing, rolling and popping in the fridge (and adding a little melted chocolate) – yummy treats don’t get much better than that!

If you haven’t tried popped quinoa before, it’s time to start! It can form the perfect crunchy base for so many raw, healthy creations like flapjacks, energy balls and crispy treats. Next up I’ll be creating my own version of ‘chocolate cornflake cakes‘ which were an easy favourite as a kid.
Drizzled with rich dark chocolate, these fig energy balls are the ultimate combo of sweet and savoury. Pack them up and take them with you for a stress-free, on-the-go snack or even as fuel for pre-post workout.
And if you want something to really get your teeth into, check out my nut and goji berry squares here. They’re just as tasty!
