These delicious raw balls will give you an energy boost!
Serves: Makes about 20 balls Time : 30 minutes
100 g raw cashews
300 g desiccated coconut
100 g pitted dates, soaked for 30 min – 2 hours, until soft
2 teaspoons coconut oil
1 ½ tablespoons cacao
2 teaspoons water
Place the cashews and coconut in a food processor and blend until mixed into a fine crumble. Remove 3 tablespoons and place in a bowl.
Then add the dates and 2 teaspoons of the water, coconut oil and cacao and pulse until the mixture turns into more of a dough. Add more water if you need more moisture, or add more coconut if it’s too wet.
Shape small balls from the mixture with your hands and place them on a baking sheet.
Roll each ball in the cashew coconut mix until they’re all coated. Optional you can also roll the balls in cacao, coconut flakes or in ground toasted salted sesame seeds. The salty taste from the sesame seeds gives a nice contrast to the sweetness of the balls.
Refrigerate before serving.
