My friend Shirly, who is an amazing alternative and holistic health practitioner, posted this recipe from Andrea Hood on her Facebook page. It looked so yummy and healthy that I decided to try it at home. And yes, it is as good as it looks. And the kids loved it!
1 cup raw organic almonds
1 cup fresh dates (about 8 dates), pitted
2 tablespoons cacao (or unsweetened cocoa powder)
2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
dash of sea salt
1. Place almonds, cacao and shredded coconut into a high-speed blender or food processor. Process on high until ingredients are a flour-like consistency.
2. Add the remaining ingredients to the blender/processor and blend on medium to high until fully incorporated into the dry ingredients.
3. Dump the mixture into a bowl. Take a tablespoon worth of the mixture in between your hands, rolling to form a ball. Repeat until all of the mixture is used.
4. Store in a sealed container for up to 5 days.
