These are sooooo yummy!! I used this recipe but changed it just a bit. Here’s what I did…
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1.5 cups pitted dates
- 1/3 cup ground flax seed
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup unsalted almonds
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries, optional: goji berries, dried cherries
- 3 tablespoon coconut oil
- unsweetened shredded coconut
I used my vitamix and killed it! Oopsie! Well it actually came back to life lol. But it did overheat.
If you click the link above, you’ll see the original recipe and the directions on how she made it. She used a food processor and pureed the dates first, then added the coconut oil, cocoa powder, cinnamon, flax seed, and vanilla and then added the rest of the stuff.
Since I messed up and stuck everything in together at the same time (another oopsie)…. mine came out very mushy and sticky and I couldn’t roll them into balls. I decided to dunk my hands in flower, roll them and then rolled them into coconut flakes. Still came out yummy!!
