- 250 g fresh dates (such as Medjool), pitted
- 40 g desiccated coconut, plus extra to coat
- 50 g raw cacao powder
- 30 g extra virgin coconut oil
Place dates into mixing bowl and chop 10 sec/speed 7. Scrape down sides of bowl.
Add remaining ingredients and mix 15 sec/speed 7. Scrape down sides and repeat mixing.
Roll mixture into small balls (approximately 1cm). Place rolled balls in a large shallow bowl (or container) filled with extra desiccated coconut. Lightly toss the balls to coat them in coconut.
Raw cacao is similar to regular cocoa except that it’s less processed and hasn’t been heated to high temperatures, so it retains more nutrients including vitamin C, iron, fibre, polyphenols and other antioxidants. Like cocoa, it does contain a little caffeine so it should be had in moderation.
If you would prefer, you can replace the raw cacao with carob powder.
Tip: It’s important to use fresh dates, rather than dried which tend to make the mixture crumbly and difficult to roll.
Tip: For a slightly sweeter version, add a little sweetener of your choice (such as brown sugar, rapadura sugar, maple syrup or stevia) to taste.
