I made these little snacks for a retreat recently and they were a big hit! Only a few ingredients, really easy to make, no added or refined sugars and totally delicious!
Want to know how to make these delicious treats?
Take around 10 soft dates. Rinse them and then place in a bowl.
Take out the stones and break the dates in half. Cover with hot water (enough to just cover them).
Measure 1 cup of oats and place in a DRY blender or grinder with 1 heaped tablespoon of cacao powder. (The blender must be completely dry!)
After blending the oats and cacao it should look like flour / powder:
Place this in a bowl. Now put the dates with the water they are soaked in, into the blender. Pulse until a thick chunky caramel consistency.
Add this date sauce to the oat flour…
And mix. Use your hands to form a dough with the mixture like this…
Break into small pieces, roll into balls and cover with coconut or cacao.
Say a little prayer of gratitude before serving to loved ones. Enjoy!
