I’ve been asked about this recipe so much that I thought I’d give it it’s very own post. When you try them you’ll see that these balls totally deserve it!
2 cups Medjool dates (don’t go for the packet pitted dates as you need this variety for their mushiness)
1 cup trail mix or mixed (unsalted) nuts – almonds work well
1/2 cup raw cacao
1 cup coconut
1. Place nuts/ trail mix in food processor and blend on high until the nuts are finely ground.
2. Add cacao.
3. Add the dates one at a time through the feed tube of the food processor while it is running. What you should end up with is a mix that appears rather like fudge.
4. Roll into balls and roll in coconut.
5. Place in freezer until ready to serve – I eat them straight from the freezer as they are so nice and chewy that way (cut them in half if they’re too hard, I find they soften pretty quickly anyway).
Try and stop at one (note: this is basically impossible!) xx
