Leia’s No Bake Coconut Balls
Being health conscious while satisfying your sweet tooth craving just got easier with these treats. These little balls are awesome!! They are easy to throw together and take no time at all to make. Since they are raw, no special equipment, (oven or stove) needed.
They also freeze well. Just place them into a Ziploc container and they will keep well in the freezer for a few weeks, (unless you won’t be able to stop eating them... :) I don't know about you but I surely like to have some handy when the cravings hit.
3/4 cup finely ground walnuts
1/4 cup finely ground tiger nuts ( or other nuts)
1/2 cup date paste
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 grounded black sesame
1 tbsp. tahini paste
3 tsp. cocoa powder
1 tbsp. honey
2-3 tsp. rum flavoring
1/3 cup shredded coconut, for rolling
Mix all of the ingredients together except the coconut. If you prefer to make them more vegan, replace honey with agave syrup.
Form into walnut size balls; roll each in coconut.
Place them on the tray in the refrigerator until serving or freeze them for later.
