  • 2 cups nuts (1 cup almonds, 1 cup walnuts)
  • 1 Cup Maida
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon powder
  • 2 cups pitted dates
  • 2 tablespoons Grade B maple syrup
  • Dried shredded coconut to roll the balls in (I like the very fine shred)

Method of Preparation:

  1. Grind nuts in food processor until they have a flour-like consistency. Add the cocoa, maida and cinnamon powder to make as chocolaty as you like- I like chocolate- Add the dates and the maple syrup.
  2. Blend together in the food processor, adding more dates until you get a “breakable” dough, which can hold form. Form into walnut sized balls in your hands. Roll and gently press the balls in the coconut.

Additional Notes

Store in fridge for up to 4 days (or freeze some)
