Date Balls

This is my favourite "treat" snack. They are so quick and easy to make and great to store in the freezer. 

What you need: 
High powered blender
Shredded coconut to roll the date balls in
Good quality medjool dates - pip removed


Chocolate:
1 cup dates
1 cup mix of nut and seeds (can use oats instead on nuts for lunch boxes)
2 tbsp cacao
1 tbsp coconut oil or peanut butter

Blend until fine
Roll into balls 
Roll in coconut to coat 
Place in the freezer to set

To add a fun surprise to this you can roll a frozen raspberry into the middle of the date ball. 

Lemon:
1 cup dates
1 cup mix of nut and seeds (can use oats instead on nuts for lunch boxes)
Zest and juice of one lemon
1/2 cup shredded coconut

Blend until fine
Roll into balls 
Roll in coconut to coat 
Place in the freezer to set

Berry:
1 cup frozen berries
1 cup mix of nut and seeds (can use oats instead on nuts for lunch boxes)
1/2 cup shredded coconut
2 tbsp honey
