IMG_3729.JPG

Ingredients:

1 cup of pecans

1 cup of ground almonds

1/2 cup desiccated coconut

3 tbsp cacao powder

3 tbsp almond butter

1 tbsp maple syrup

1 cup (approx 7) medjool dates

1/4 tsp salt

 

Method:

Place the almonds, pecans and salt into a blender/food processor and blend until a chunky flour is formed. Then add the desiccated coconut and cacao powder and blitz for another few minutes until everything is combined. Add your liquid based ingredients; almond butter, maple syrup and blend until everything is combined and a sticky mixture is formed. Lastly, pit your dates one at a time.

 

*tip – if your mixture is too dry add more of the wet ingredients; dates, almond butter. If your mixture is too wet then add more of the dry ingredients; pecan/almond flour.

 

Roll the mixture into balls and place them into the fridge for thirty minutes to set and firm up. These will last you up to three months but it’s almost guaranteed they’ll be eaten before then.
