Ingredients(Makes around 20, depending on the size)
1 cup almonds
1 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
15-18 nos dates, seeds removed
2 tbso chia seeds (optional)
2 tbsp coconut oil
- Toast almonds, oats and dessicated coconut separately in the microwave. To do this, take a microwave safe plate, spread the almonds, microwave high for 2 minutes, stop and stir after 1 minute.
- Remove the almonds to another plate. In the same plate, add oats and microwave high for a minute. Remove it to the same almonds plate. Likewise toast dessicated coconut for 30 seconds.
- Let the ingredietns cool completely. While they are resting, let us get the dates ready. If using dates with seeds, remove the seeds. Now take almonds, oats and dessicated coconut in a mixer and pulse them together to a coarse powder. Then add pitted dates to this mixture and pulse again in gaps for a minute, so it comes together like a ball.
- Finally add the coconut oil to mixture, pulse once more and remove it to a flat plate. add chia seeds to it and start making small ping-pong sized balls. Store them in an air-tight container, i prefer to refrigerate as it contains coconut and in this hot climate, didnt want to take the risk.
