Skip the chocolate hangover this Easter and try these delicious and easy Raw Date Fudge Balls! Chocolate Eggs and Easter Bunny’s have been decorating the supermarket shelves since January! I love my festive holidays but hate the thought of giving in to clever marketing and handing my hard earned cash over to these seemingly evil corporations.
“Although dates are unable to be sourced locally, they are a great sugar alternative. They are also high in numerous antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre”
This Easter look back to old traditions such as Easter egg hunts with REAL eggs. Skip that 200g chocolate bunny that is guaranteed to NOT be fair trade and is going straight to your hips. Think twice about what the palm oil is doing in your chocolate, and if its worth devastating the orangutans rain forest so you can give into your sweet tooth. These Raw Date Fudge Balls are guaranteed to satisfy even the biggest chocoholics and just one of these sweet little treats usually does the trick!
Ingredients for Raw Date Fudge Balls
3/4 cup dates, pitted
1/2 cup cashews
1/4 cup walnuts
1/8 cup raw cocoa powder
pinch of ginger powder
1/4 cup sunflower seeds or chia seeds (optional)
water as needed
1/8 cup dessicated coconut
Method for Raw Date Fudge Balls
Combine first 6 ingredients in a food processor. Add water if mixture seems to dry. I usually end up using about a 1/4 cup of water.
Remove mixture from food processor and roll into little balls. My mixture made 8 about the size of a ping pong ball.
Roll the now completed fudge balls in the dessicated coconut so they are coated evenly. Done!
