Also known as bird turds – thanks mum – these little nut free powerhouses are a super tasty chocolatey treat without the guilt. Just don’t have too many. They do contain maca so pregnant ladies please omit this when making, and enjoy!
200g sunflower seeds
100g desiccated coconut
40g raw cacao
2Tbsp maca powder
20 fresh dates – pitted (this is a rough measure you may need a few less or more depending on their size.)
Place all ingredients except for dates into food processor/thermomix and blend until fine. With motor running, add dates 2 to 3 at a time. The mixture will be soft and squishy and hold together when formed into a ball.
Roll mixture into balls. You can store these in the fridge and they also freeze really well.
Secret squirrel tip
If you press this mix into a brownie tin and cut into nice thick slices, you can warm it a little in the microwave (25-40sec) and it will be like a fudgy brownie, just add cream and berries for a totally delicious dessert! – x
