The perfect recipe to add to your prep day so that when your craving something to pick you up in the afternoon your not always reaching for something with sugar. We love having a batch of these in our freezer for snacks. 


Ingredients

  • 2 cups almond meal

  • 2 -3 heaped tbsp raw cacao

  • 1 1/2 cups pitted dates

  • 1 1/2 cups desiccated coconut

  •  1 teaspoons vanilla essence

  • 3 tbsp coconut oil (slightly melted if its hard)

  •  4-6 drops of peppermint oil

  • 1 tsp of cinnamon myrtle or cinnamon 

Method

Put all ingredients into the food processor except the almond meal and half the coconut.Blend to a sticky mixture and transfer to a large bowl. 

In a mixing bowl, add the almond meal and mix in well. Place in the fridge for a minimum of half a hour. 

Put the left over desiccated coconut on a plate. Roll the mixture into small to medium sized balls and cover in coconut. You can use a little warm water to wet your hands when rolling the balls.

Put in the fridge or freezer depending how you like them.
