I made these recently for some yogi friends and they didn’t last long!
Based on a Lola Berry recipe, here is my version with some modifications. I added prunes and apricots for a more fruity taste (just dates makes it quite bland)
1 cup dates, pitted and chopped
1/2 cup goji berries
1/2 cup dried apricots chopped
1/2 cup pitted prunes chopped
1 cup walnuts
1 cup almond meal
3/4 cup cacao
2 Tblspoons coconut oil (melted)
2 Tblspoons unsweetened vanilla almond milk and 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup cacao nibs (or dark chocolate chips I used Ritter sport chocolate the first time)
I have tried using the 2 cups dates in place of the prunes and apricots and it’s nice but more fudgey and a bit plain rather than fruity.
1/2 cup fine dedicated coconut for rolling
Method: place fruit, goji berries and nuts in blender with almond meal and blitz on high for about 2 mins or until it resembles a sand. You can keep blending if you want to make it into a brownie or just keep it chunky if you like nutty pieces.
Melt the coconut oil and pour it into processor while it’s on the low setting with the vanilla extract and almond milk. It will start to form a paste. Spread the coconut out on a shallow roasting tray and spread out.
Roll into small, medium or large sized balls, toss through the dedicated coconut. Freeze for thirty mins before serving and enjoy!!!
They will be best kept in the fridge or freezer, will last longer if frozen.. but honestly… freshly made bliss won’t ever last long! Enjoy 🙂
