Recipe type: Sweets
Serves: 20
  • 1 cup almonds, preferably activated (sprouted)
  • ½ cup cashews, preferably activated (sprouted)
  • 4 Medjool dates, pitted and roughly chopped
  • 1 cup sultanas
  • Zest and juice of one organic orange
  • ¼ cup raw cacao powder
  • ¼ cup desiccated coconut + more for rolling
  1. Pop your almonds and cashews into your food processor. Blitz on high until they resemble fine bread crumbs.
  2. Add your dates, sultanas, zest and juice of the orange, cacao powder and desiccated coconut to the nut mixture. Pulse until thoroughly mixed into a thick dough. Give it a pinch test between your fingers. If it's a little dry, add a drop or two of water.
  3. Pour about a ¼ cup of desiccated coconut into a bowl. Using a tablespoon as your measure, roll balls of the mixture between your hands, and then roll in coconut to cover.
  4. Pop into the fridge for at least an hour to chill before devouring.
Recipe does not include activating or chilling time!
