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!
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.
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.
