Had a go at capturing some healthy Christmas cheer today and I think I may have succeeded 🙂
They are dairy-free, nearly gluten-free, and the only added sugar is in the chocolate coating (which if you use dark chocolate is not a lot)…. but they are rather tasty and easy as to make.
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup almond meal
1 cup coconut flour
1 tsp natural vanilla essence
1 big tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp cardamom
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp chilli powder
1 Big TBSP coconut oil
pinch of salt
3 cups of soaked dates
1 block dark chocolate (I use whittikers for dairy-free)
Combine all the dry ingredients, and spices in the food processor then add the dates and coconut oil and blend to a dough like consistency.
Roll into balls and allow a little time to set then dip into melted chocolate to coat. Sprinkle with edible glitter for some extra flair 😉
You could try using whole almonds instead of almond meal for a more chunky texture, but the almond meal makes it more “cookie-dough” like.
Yum Yum the perfect after-dinner treat, with a hot tea or coffee. And the bonus is that the ginger and spices will help to settle you tummy and speed up digestion after big festive meals.
