- Cooking Time: Mins
- 2 cups pitted dates
- 1 cup activated cashews
almonds or walnuts will work too, but we like cashews for their milder flavour
- 1/2 cup activated sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup raw cacao powder
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp cacao butter
you can use coconut oil or grass fed ghee instead
- pinch sea salt
- 2 drops peppermint or orange essential oils, or rose water
this is optional flavour variations.
Add all ingredients into a food processor and blend till the mixture is finely crumbly.
The mixture should come together when you press them into a ball. Add 1 tbsp of water if it's too dry. Compact and roll them into walnut size balls.
Press them flat to form a thick cookie bite.
Store them in an airtight container and they will last 2 weeks in the fridge.
