1/2 cup dates
1 cup rolled oats
70g raw cashew nuts
1/4 cup almonds
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
100g dark chocolate, chopped
Shredded coconut, to roll
Melted chocolate to drizzle on top.
Place the first four ingredients into a food processor and pulse until the nuts are ground into small pieces. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until they come together into a firm consistency. If they are too crumbly, add a little extra coconut oil. Roll into balls, and roll around in the coconut to coat. Melt a little chocolate and drizzle on top if desired.
Store these in an air tight container in the fridge.
Enjoy for a morning sweet treat.
