*3 generous heaped tablespoons of dark cacao powder.
*1.5 cups of pitted soft medjool dates
*1 tsp of melted coconut virgin oil
** Blend away the above ingredients for a couple of minutes in a food processor (until they clump together). Scoop, roll the mixture into small balls with wet hands. Then roll the balls in anything your heart desires over baking paper. I coated them with cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, walnuts + ground coffee + pure maple syrup, rose essence, vanilla essence, cacao nibs, more dark cacao powder…cool them in the fridge for 10 minutes before engulfing them. If you can wait that long ofcourse!
Other innovative coatings can be sesame seeds, caramelized almonds or walnut pieces, pistachios, roasted rose petals, saffron, goji berries, maca….you name it! Play around, get creative!
