CACAO COCONUT BALLS

  • 3 dates
  • 170g almond meal (or 170g raw almonds ground finely)
  • 60 raw macadamias
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp rice malt syrup
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao
  • Desiccated coconut to coat

(you can use activated nuts if you find them difficult to digest)

METHOD

Combine all ingredients (except coconut) in a high power blender. Blend on high speed until mixture resembles sticky crumbs (approximately 30 seconds)

If the mixture is too crumbly add a teaspoon of water and blend again, repeat if necessary.

Press small amounts firmly with hands to form small balls (approximately 35g each).

Roll in coconut (you can add a splash of water to coconut to help it stick to the balls)
