My friend Keekle gave me this recipe that she got from Chocolate Covered Katie. It’s super simple and delish, and RAW.
You need 1 cup of dates, 1 cup of walnuts, 2 tsp vanilla, 1 tablespoon cocoa.
I chop my dates, but Keekle just throws hers straight into the food processor. MY food processor isn’t strong enough to chop them up which is weird because I paid $14.00 dollars for it at an estate sale. The first time I made these, the dates looked like big roach bodies. Yum.
Same with the walnuts. Please, excuse the paper plate. With the price of walnuts being what it is, I should have presented these on a silver platter. Next time.
The original recipe calls for more cocoa powder, but I think 1 tablespoon is enough. Play around and see what YOU think.
I don’t have a photo of the vanilla, just use your imagination. Keekle says once she’s mixed everything up in her processor, she just rolls them into little balls and she’s done. Mine won’t really stick together very well, so I add 1/8 cup of coconut milk.
I put them in the fridge for about 15 minutes but I’m not sure that’s even necessary. Most of what I do in the kitchen isn’t.
Moron Test Grade – A! These are yummy, healthy, all-natural and raw. Which is why I felt compelled to eat 7200 of them. I don’t know how many calories they have, but Keekle and Katie are both very slim, and that’s good enough for me.
