Simone, one of our customers recently shared one of her favourite recipes with me. As often happens, when trying something new, I add and make changes to use ingredients on hand. You too, can experiment using some of your favourite nuts and seeds.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almonds, ½ cup Brazil nuts, ⅓ cup cashews
  • 1 cup coconut
  • ⅓ cup pumpkin seeds, ⅓ cup sunflower seeds, ¼ cup sesame seeds
  • 2 teasp. cinnamon
  • 1 ½ cups chopped dates
  • 3 tablesp. cocao (or cocoa, or carob)
  • ¾ cup coconut oil
  • 3 tablesp. peanut butter
  • 2 tablesp. honey

Method

  • Place coconut oil, peanut butter and honey into a small saucepan and gently heat through.
  • Place all other ingredients into a food processor, and blend together well.
  • Pour the gently warmed ingredients into the processor and blend all well together.
  • If the mixture is too dry, add a little more softened coconut oil.
  • If mix seems too sticky, add more coconut, or put mixture in the fridge for ½ hour then roll.
  • Roll into snack sized balls.
  • Store in a sealed glass container in the fridge.
