An enticing title, agreed? I shall try not to disappoint.
I made these balls on a lazy Sunday, when I felt like being a good wifey and making wholesome treats from scratch.
There are plenty of recipes for this kind of thing on the inter web, this is my take on them. If you can’t find/ can’t afford fresh medjool dates, just get the ordinary kind and soak them for a few hours to make them all nice and moist… Also, if you want to use different nuts, give it a go and find a combo that works for you 🙂
Balls Of Fun
2 cups walnuts (whole or pieces)
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup shredded/desiccated coconut
2/3 cup cacao powder (or just plain old cocoa powder will work too)
8 fresh dates, pitted and chopped up (or dried, just soak for a few hours first)
1/4 cup of water
pinch of sea salt
- Combine walnuts, sunflower seeds, dates and coconut in food processor. Pulse until combined.
- Add cacao powder, salt, and water and process until mixture forms a dough.
- Make the dough into wee balls by rolling between your palms. Or big balls. Whatever you’re into.
- Pop them on a tray or container and chill to let them get hard.
- Eat dem.
