Here's a recipe for something nutritious, and super easy, and super yummy:
(I'm sorry but that's the best name I can come up with at 11:30 pm!)
- About 200g (7oz) Medjool dates, pitted
- About 1/2 cup Dutch processed cocoa powder
- About 1/2 cup ground hazelnuts/filberts
- Other coating options: shredded coconut, ground walnuts, chocolate sprinkles, cookie crumbs
In a food processor, process dates with a teaspoon of cocoa powder and 2 teaspoon of ground hazelnuts until smooth. It should be sticky but not overly sticky. Dust your fingers and palms with cocoa powder and roll into balls. Roll them over more cocoa powder and ground hazelnuts and they are ready to eat! (or refrigerate for later)
If the dates alone are not sweet enough, add a bit of honey or syrup during the processing step. If they are too sweet, add a bit more ground nuts to dilute the sugars in the dates.
Enjoy with a hot cup of herbal tea. Happy eating!
