I love having a stash of these in the freezer at all times - perfect for afternoon tea or dessert, just pop out a few and pair with a peppermint tea. They're super healthy for you with a bunch of incredible superfoods, and will settle any sweet craving you might have in an instant. You can also add a few drops of peppermint oil to make a nice after dinner mint ball.
Plant based, made with wholefoods, vegan, sugar free, gluten free, and suitable if you're following a Paleo diet too; no one will say no to these if you bring them to the party. Soaking the nuts will remove the enzyme inhibitors and make it easier to digest all the nutrients in the nuts, but if you run out of time for this they'll still be awesome.
Makes 20 balls
*Always use certified organic ingredients whenever possible*
1 c raw nuts soaked & rinsed (check out info on soaking times here)
1/3 c raw cacao powder
1/3 c desiccated coconut
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
1 c medjoul dates (or regular dates soaked in hot water for 15 mins)
2 Tbsp melted coconut oil
Try them out! Let me know if you love them as much as I do.

VIDEO POST! Banoffee Pie is always a favourite, and this healthy version tastes just as good as the original, without leaving you feeling heavy or bloated afterwards. Luscious, low sugar, and delicious!
