Recipe: Healthy Date Balls

Ingredients

  • 400g soft, pitted dates (I used medjool and pitted them myself)
  • 200g ground almonds
  • 30g raw cacao powder
  • 40g desiccated coconut
  • pinch of sea salt flakes
  • 1 Tsp. vanilla extract
  • 4 Tbsp. almond milk
  • A selection of seeds for rolling (I used chia, brown linseed, sesame and pumpkin)

Instructions

  1. Put the dates into a food processor and blend until they are sticky and form a soft ball
  2. Add the almonds, cacao powder, coconut and salt, process again
  3. You may have to stop to push the mixture down towards the blades if it is sticky. You can also add a little water or additional almond milk
  4. Add the liquid ingredients, blend again until a ball forms in the mixing bowl, add additional milk if required
  5. Use a tea spoon to measure out spoonfuls of mixture and use your hand to roll into balls
  6. Roll each ball in your seed mixture and keep in the fridge

Notes

Perfect for lunchboxes, breakfasts on the go or for flagging energy!
