Ingredients

  • 1 Cup of Desiccated Coconut (90g)
  • 1/2 Cup of Ground Almonds (60g)
  • 1 Cup of Dates (150g)
  • 2 Tablespoons of Cacao Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon of Maple Syrup/Honey
  • Pinch of Coarse Salt

These Coconut Cacao Bon Bons are as good as they look and so simple. Deliciously chewy, chocolatey balls with just the right amount of sweetness, dusted in gorgeously fine coconut sprinkles.

Add the dates to a bowl and pour boiling water over them, then leave them to soak. Add the desiccated coconut to your food processor and blitz until you have a really fine dust. Pour half of it into a bowl and leave the other half in the food processor.

Add the ground almonds, cacao powder and salt to the food processor and blitz until combined.

Drain the dates and add them to the coconut almond mixture. Blitz until blended evenly and you have a crumbly, mushy mixture.

Add in the tablespoon of sweetener and blitz until you have a smoothish dough.

Use your hands to roll the mixture into little balls, then roll them in the finely ground coconut you kept aside at the start.

 Then pop one in your mouth!
