I can’t even call this “baking” so let’s just call this “making”! 🙂
I recently got a food processor, because you know … I thought I couldn’t actually live without it! Turns out, I could have easily got by without it… as it sat in the box untouched for a few months! So I made myself dig it out and use it for something… and these are exactly the kind of thing I wanted to use it for. Just a few simple healthy ingredients, bang them all in and blitz to bits – and voila, a healthy treat to snack on.
30g cacao powder
50g desiccated coconut
200g pitted dates that have been soaked and then drained
1.5 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp honey
1. Put the almonds, cacao powder & 25g of the coconut in the food processor and blitz for ages till relatively smooth.
2. Then add 200g pitted dates that have been soaked and drained , 1.5 tbsp coconut oil and 1 tbsp honey…Blitz again like crazy to a dough, then take out and roll into balls and roll in more coconut.
Keep them refrigerated and they’ll last for a week – if you haven’t polished them off by then! 🙂
