Merry Christmas everyone! I hope that wherever you are and whatever you are doing, you have a lovely day with family and friends. We'll be hanging out today with the grandparents and eating nut balls. Yum!
These nut balls are a fudgey and heavenly vegan treat. Best of all, they're date free and you can use whichever nut butter you prefer. I've made these with an almond, cashew and brazil nut butter. You can add sugar if you want them to be sweet but I like the slightly savoury taste that comes when there's no sweetener.
250g jar nut butter
3/4 cup desiccated coconut plus extra for rolling
2 tbsp cacao powder
2 tbsp coconut/rapadura sugar (optional)
Tip the whole jar of nut butter into a bowl. If the oil has separated from the nuts, carefully mix it back in.
Add the cacao powder and coconut and mix well.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Scoop out a tablespoon of mixture and roll into balls.
Roll into the coconut.
