Wellness Recipe: Superfood Raw Fudge Balls !

♥ YUM!

At age 19, I can honestly say I’ve started to find balance in what I eat. I never weigh myself or count calories, but focus on eating fresh, wholesome food. I love going to Farmers Markets and buying produce that’s in season, and creating simple and delicious recipes. Lately, I love recipes which taste indulgent but are really super healthy and packed full of nutrients. These Superfood Raw Fudge Balls are a perfect example.

Why not take these bite sized delights to your next party to share, or wrap up & give as a gift 🙂

Recipe:

Ingredients

♥ 1 cup dates (medjool work best)
♥ 1 cup walnuts
♥ 1/2 cup shredded or desiccated coconut, plus extra
♥ 1/4 cup raw cacao
♥ handful of goji berries (use dried cranberries for a cheaper alternative)
♥ handful of chia seeds

Method

1. Blend all ingredients together
2. Form into balls. If they fall apart, simply add more blended dates to the mixture
3. Roll in shredded/desiccated coconut

Ta-daaa!

This recipe can be altered according to taste or what you already have. Feel free to swap the walnuts for almonds or the dates for prunes. I decided to wrap about 10 of these for my ballet teacher the other day. Here’s how to wrap them up…

Simply take 1 sheet of baking paper and 1 sheet of cellophane, as well as a longish piece of string

Place about 10 fudge balls in the centre

Wrap the baking paper around the fudge balls first, then the cellophane. Tie the string around to secure.


Gift complete! How easy was that? Does this look like something you’d like to make/scoff down?

    YUMMO – I make a similar one using organic chocolate nut butter very delicious too!

  3. I like adding cashew butter or tahini to mine for an extra protein kick. Super filling and sooooo good!

    Nice! I often make these but I’ve started being a cheapskate and just including hazelnuts or sunflower seeds + dates + cacao. This has inspired me to try different ingredients. I never thought of adding dried berries!

    Is it possible to blend nuts in a regular blender?! I have a vitamix now, but I broke at least two (admittedly cheap) blenders in the past trying to blend nuts – how do you guys do it?

    Awesome Felicity, thanks for your variation!

    You can blend nuts in a blender that has steel blades but I wouldn’t try with plastic blades! 🙂
