I recently came across these delicious treats in one of @deliciouslyella‘s delis in London. I find them to be the ideal snack or pre work out energy booster 😋
They’re super easy to make, they only contain 5 ingredients! You can make a large quantity and freeze them.
Ingredients (Makes about 16 balls)
200g almonds or almond powder (1 cup)
400g medjool dates (2 cups)
4 tablespoons of raw cacao powder
2 ½ tablespoons of almond butter
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
Agave syrup (Optionnal, to taste)
Desiccated coconut (Optionnal)
Start by creating the almond powder if you’re using whole almonds: place them in your food processor and pulse until they are nicely crushed.
Add the medjool dates and coconut oil and pulse until it’s fully mixed into a paste. Then add the almond butter and cacao. Mix again.
Take the “dough” out and start forming into balls using a tablespoon.
Place the rolled balls into the fridge for around 1 hour, then remove and store in an airtight container in the fridge or freeze them if you won’t consume them in the next 3-4 days!
