I love making these for The indigo project team and friends for a sugar-free delicious treat and they’re so easy to make. Feel free to experiment with different nuts like cashews and almonds or dried fruits, nuts and seeds. These will keep well in the fridge throughout the week, although they’ll likely be gone before the week ends!
- 2 cups medjool dates
- 2 cups walnuts
- 2/3 cup coconut oil
- 2/3 cup organic raw cacao powder
- 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
- Extra desiccated coconut for rolling balls into
Soak medjool dates for 15 minutes in warm water to soften.
While waiting blend walnuts in a food processor or blender.
Remove nuts and place into a bowl.
Add cacao and desiccated coconut to bowl.
Drain water from dates and place into blender with melted coconut oil.
Blend and add to bowl and thoroughly combine ingredients.
Roll into small balls.
Coat in coconut and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
Leave them for at least a few hours so they reach a firmer texture.
