Unprocessed Day 56: Choco-Carob Balls

I have been making these treats when the cookies run out before it’s time to bake more.  They are so good!!  I usually just toss handfuls of stuff in the food processor but this time I measured as I went and they turned out really good, so I’ll share the recipe.

Choco-Carob Balls

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 3/4 cup pitted medjool dates
  • 1 cup toasted walnuts
  • 2-3 T maple syrup
  • 2 T cocoa powder
  • 2 T carob powder

Process the oats, coconut, dates, and walnuts until they are well mixed and chopped fine.  Add the syrup, cocoa, and carob. Process until the mixture starts to form a ball.  Wrap in plastic and chill until firm.  Roll into balls and roll them in cocoa powder or coconut, or leave as is.

Eat one right away, and then wait for the rest to refrigerate until nice and firm, they are better that way 🙂
