150 grams almonds/macadamias or a mixture of both (or 100 grams pumpkin seeds and 100 grams sunflower seeds for nut free)
30 grams desiccated coconut
2 tlbsp organic coconut oil
16 pitted dates (soak in water beforehand for best results)
2 tlbsp raw cacao
2 tlbsp rice syrup/maple syrup/organic honey
½ tsp vanilla extra
¼ to ½ cup of water
Desiccated coconut for rolling
Place nuts into the food processor with cacao (or cocoa) and blend until the mix looks crumbly.
Slowly melt the coconut oil and maple syrup/rice syrup/honey over a gentle heat then add to nut mixture in food processor.
Add dates, desiccated coconut and vanilla extract then process again until the mix comes together.
Add ¼ to ½ cup of water as you go to ensure the mixture is soft. You may need a little more or less, depending upon consistency.
Roll in coconut and store in the fridge for up to 4 weeks until you feel like a snack or meal on the run.
Forms approx. 20 decent sized balls.
