Raw coconut truffles
Ingredients
  • 10 pitted medjool dates (or if using dried dates, soak them beforehand)
  • 100 g seeds and nuts of your choice – sunflower/pumpkin seeds, cashews, walnuts, pecans and almonds all work well
  • 35 g dessicated coconut, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp almond butter

Blend the nuts and seeds in a food processor until they are quite fine. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until a sticky dough form. Shape into bitesize balls and roll in the dessicated coconut. I like to put these in the freezer where they will keep for about week (if they last that long!) but they can also be kept in the fridge. Fantastic lunch-box treats (just use seeds if the school has a no nut policy) and a perfect mid-afternoon bite with a lovely cup of peppermint tea.
