Rough recipe for a last minute almost vegan, raw and healthy Christmas treat.
Really quick to make if you need yet more food at Christmas!
A couple of handfuls of nuts (soaked over night) – Cashews work best. I mixed cashews, almonds and walnuts together.
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp raw cacao powder
1 tsp honey (if you want this recipe to be strictly vegan, leave the honey out)
1 tsp vanilla extract
some dessicated coconut for rolling
Place the nuts in to a food processor or strong blender and pulse until they’re finely chopped
Add the dates and vanilla extract and pulse again
Add the cinnamon, raw cacao powder and honey if you’re using it
Blend until everything comes together and forms a kind of sticky mess!
Take the mess out of the blender and put it in to a bowl (this will probably be the most annoying part!)
Roll the mixture in to however many little balls you want (I made about 12)
Pour some dessicated coconut in to a bowl and roll the balls around in the coconut to cover them
Place in the fridge or freezer (or outside where it’s probably colder than the fridge!) to set for a few hours or over night
