Prep Time 10 minutes
chilling 30 minutes
Servings 16 balls

Ingredients

  • 200 g pitted dates
  • 110 g ground almonds
  • 40 g raw cashews, chopped
  • 30 g cacao powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • zest of 1 orange
  • juice of 1 orange
  • desiccated coconut for dusting

Instructions

  1. Using a food processor or a high powered blender, blitz the dates and orange juice to a paste.

  2. Add the ground almonds, cashew nuts, orange zest, cacao powder and salt then pulse until combined. 

  3. Tip the mixture onto a piece of baking paper and roll into a log shape (don't worry it will look much more appealing later!) Roll it up into the paper and pop it into the fridge for 30 mins to chill.

  4. Once you and the log have chilled, cut the log into about 16-18 pieces and roll each piece into a ball.

  5. Sprinkle some desiccated coconut onto a plate and roll each ball around to cover it. (If you don't like coconut you can use more ground almonds or cacao powder). 

  6. They will keep in the fridge for about a week, if you can make them last that long!
