Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp buckwheat groats
  • 2 tbsp shredded, dried coconut
  • a handful cashews
  • 10 medjool dates (pitted)
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (optional)
  • more shredded coconut for coating

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until everything sticks together nicely. Scoop out a little of the dough and shape into a little ball. Roll in the shredded coconut and set aside. Repeat until there's no more dough left. Place the balls in the refrigerator for about an hour before serving to make them "harden" up a little.

Notes

Omit the coconut oil, and use buckwheat groats or raw oats in place of shredded coconut and cashews to make the recipe low in fat. You can use any other nut instead of cashews. Carob powder may substitute the cacao, this will also make the recipe a bit lower in fat. You can use any other date-variety, or raisins or dried figs instead of medjool dates.
