DSC_0022 (1)

These little morsels are perfect for before or after a workout. If you have a sweet tooth this will also hit the spot as it is a great tasting and a healthy alternative which is packed with vitamins and minerals.  The taste is chocolaty with caramel tones.

Quantity – 16 balls depending on size

One serving = 2 balls

Ingredients:

200g Medjool Dates (I used SO Organic Medjool Dates)

3 tblsp Unsweetened Desiccated Coconut, plus extra for decoration

2 tblsp Cocoa Powder

1/2 tsp good quality Maple Syrup

2 tblsp Linwoods Milled Flax, Sunflower, Pumpkin, Sesame Seeds & Goji Berries

75g dark chocolate (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Remove the pips from the dates then add them into a food processor and blitz until a ball forms.
  2. Add the rest of all the ingredients and blitz until a ball forms again.
  3. Then scoop out some of the mixture and roll into equal sized morsels. (I’ve measured mine to 18g sized balls.)
  4. Place in the fridge till cold.
  5. If you choose to coat your morsels with chocolate; melt the dark chocolate and drench or drizzle the chocolate over the date morsels and then sprinkle some coconut over. Set aside to cool in the fridge again.
  6. You can keep them in a container in the fridge. These are now ready to eat when energy is needed or just when a nice treat is desired. DSC_0026 (1)
