Nutty Candy Balls
Make sure you serve these candy balls chilled. I keep them in the fridge and get them out just before serving.
Recipe type: Sweets
Cuisine: Dessert
  • 100 gr cashews and almonds
  • 80 gr pitted dates
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp virgin coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp rolled oats
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • shredded coconut, sesame seeds, chia seeds to your liking for decoration
  1. Grind the nuts and oats in a food processor until you have a coarse kind of nut flour.
  2. Add the dates, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract and cacao powder and mix all ingredients together.
  3. You can do this in a blender, but I think it is too sticky. I loose a lot of the paste when I use a blender.
  4. Knead for a minute and then chill the mixture for 10 minutes in the fridge.
  5. Take the mixture out of the fridge and roll little candy balls. I use a teaspoon of mixture per ball.
  6. I you like you can roll the balls through shredded coconut, sesame seeds, chia seeds or cacao nibs.
  7. Store the balls in the fridge or freezer.
  8. Enjoy!
