1 1/2 cups cashews, or 1 cup cashew butter
3/4 cup date paste
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut, plus more for rolling
In a food processor blend cashews for several minutes, until they become cashew butter. Then add date paste, cocoa, vanilla, and coconut process until well mixed. Form into small balls and roll in additional coconut, put in a covered container and keep in refrigerator. They keep for up to 10 days.
These were my favorite treat after I quit refined sugar. I love to keep them stocked in the fridge for those nights that I am hanging out with my husband, or afternoon snacks with a smoothie or fruit.
