Raw cocao fudge balls!
This was meant to be the recipe for my cocao nut bliss balls featured in my holiday snack preparation post. Some how however I have managed to loose my recipe! With the ebook under way I have scraps of paper with scribbled recipes all over the place!
I decided to make some more so I could give you exact measurements of ingredients, but got a bit off track as per usual and have created a new and improved version – The raw cocao fudge balls!
These chocolatey fudge balls are heaven and full of antioxidants and omega’s.
2 cups of fresh medjool dates
3 heaped tbs cocao powder
1 tbs coconut sugar or rapadura
1 tbs chia seeds
1 tbs vanilla extract
2 tbs tahini or nut butter or 1 of each
1 cup raw nuts of choice (I used brazil nuts and walnuts)
pinch of himalayan salt
1 tbs maca powder (optional)
Blend all the ingredients together on the highest speed for about 1-1.5 minutes or until all ingredients are combined into a moist dough.
If using a thermomix: speed 9, 1 minute.
Roll dough into balls and then roll them in your favourite topping. These balls are great rolled in shredded coconut. Other options include; cocao powder, chia seeds, goji berries, sesame seeds.
Enjoy with a cup of herbal tea!
