Sharron’s date and coconut bliss balls
Posted by Katie Brown, 05-Jan-2022
Check out this recipe from our President, Sharron Williams. Just four ingredients – including super spice: cardamom – which is anti-inflammatory and helps aid digestion.
- 1 cup pitted dates
- 1 cup desiccated coconut
- ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
- 1 tbsp ghee or coconut oil
Finely chop your dates. Pop them in a mixing bowl and soak them in boiled water for about 30 seconds, then drain.
Now add the coconut, cardamom and ghee and gently knead into a “dough” being careful not to burn yourself on the hot dates!
Next, simply roll the “dough” into small balls about the size of a walnut.
Roll each ball in some dried coconut, when you’re done, pop them in the fridge to harden.
OPTION: To make them chocolatey, add 1-2 tsp of organic raw cacao powder at the same time as the coconut etc.
Makes approx. 10 balls: GF, Vegan Option
