Yum! I made these last night as a treat and they’re gone already! I had a rather down day at work today (a disturbing trend I’ve noticed lately) and I ended up eating all of them by early afternoon. Not completely recommended but at least I can console myself by telling myself that they are “healthy.” Right now these get a 5/5 happy monkeys for being the bright point in my day.
– 3 dates, pitted
– 1/4 cup almonds
– 1/4 cup cashews
– 2 tbsp raw carob
– 2 tsp raw cocoa
– cinnamon to sprinkle/roll in
Combine all but the cinnamon in the Vita Mix and blend until your Vita Mix gives up. It will be sticky but not completely homogeneous. Form into balls and roll in cinnamon or sprinkle cinnamon over them. They might be crumbly when bitten. Try not to eat all of them at once.
Next time I might: add more cocoa, add more cinnamon directly into the mix, use another date for more stickiness or soak dates first. Make them again tonight! And make a double or triple batch.
