Tuesday afternoon after school, chicken was roasting in the oven, the kids had worked their way through the rice crackers and I needed something sweet and quick for afternoon tea. Chuck a few things in the thermomix and voila….sweet and healthy balls. But that did not sound like a good recipe name……………….so I went with date and almond balls.
I know there are lots of different recipes for healthy treats but I love chucking a few things in from the pantry and hoping for the best. I’m also keen to try out the coconut oil which I had bought because a few recipes called for it. I think the coconut oil and the maple syrup really make these treats so good! They were gobbled up by everyone.
- 1 cup dates
- 1 cup almonds
- good splosh of pure maple syrup
- teaspoon of organic coconut oil
- Place ingredients in food processor or thermomix and blitz until finely processed. I did mine for about 10-20 seconds on speed 6 in the thermomix.
- Wet hands, roll into balls and eat straight away or store in fridge or freezer.
