Emma’s Pineapple and Chia Balls

Emma Ellice-Flint’s Pineapple and Chia Balls

These nourishing pineapple and chia balls make a great snack. They contain plenty of fibre and prebiotics to support your gastrointestinal tract.

The chia seeds contain anti-inflammatory omega-3 oils that help you to build and maintain a healthy body. Store them in the fridge for up to 6 days or freeze to eat later. You can also freeze any leftover pineapple in chunks.

Emma’s Pineapple and Chia Balls Main

Makes about 25 



  1. Add the nuts and seeds to a food processor, and blend until ground to a crumb. Then add the rest of the ingredients and blend well. If you don’t have a food processor, grind the nuts and seeds in a blender or smoothie maker, then tip into a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients to the blender then once blended, add to the bowl along with the nuts and mix fully. 
  2. Allow the mixture to rest for 10 minutes so the chia seeds can soak up any excess moisture. 
  3. Take 1 tablespoon of mixture, and using your hands, gently roll into a ball. 
  4. Toss the ball into some desiccated coconut to coat, and repeat until you’ve used all the mixture.
