These little balls of deliciousness are great for keeping a sweet tooth under control.  Having a batch of these in the fridge will prevent you from reaching for that bar of chocolate or packet of biscuits!

Ingredients

1 cup of Walnuts, roughly chopped

2 1/2 tbsp Cacao Powder

1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

2/3 of a cup of Pitted Dates

1 tbsp Coconut Oil (melted)

1 tbsp Water (optional)

Some unsweetened dessicated coconut, roughly 3 tbsp to decorate.

Method

In a food processor or Nutribullet, grind down the walnuts to a fine meal.

Add in the rest of the ingredients (except the water) and process until a sticky dough is formed.

If the mixture is still a little dry, then add the water.

Take out a heaped teaspoon of the mixture and roll into a ball, then roll in the dessicated coconut.
