Another month is upon us – wow, this year is flying already!
I’ve been working hard and eating lots, I’ve also been making lots of healthy clean treats which has been a lot of fun.
I’ve recently been seeing a naturopath who has put me on a grain free plan which has been ever so challenging because I love bread, rice and pasta – all the things I know I probably shouldn’t be really eating but eat anyway.
This month I thought I’d share a delicious health ball recipe which has given my 3pm sugar cravings the kick.
This ball recipe consists of all things healthy and is gluten, dairy, grain and refined sugar free … that sounds intense when you say it out loud but trust me they are delicious!
Good luck making this recipe and if you do, don’t forget to tag us in your beautiful pictures.
Allira’s caramel balls
2 cups of dates either medjool or dried
1 cup of shredded coconut
1 cup of almonds
3 tablespoons of coconut oil (melted)
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
Melt your coconut oil, then add all ingredients into a food processor and blitz until all ingredients have been broken down.
If your mixture is too dry, add a little more coconut oil if it’s too wet, add a bit more shredded coconut.
Once you have mixed everything, place the mixture into a bowl with baking paper and place into the freezer for an hour this will allow it to set a little bit and will help with rolling.
After an hour, pull the balls out and roll to desired size, then roll the balls into some sesame seeds.
They are now ready to eat.
These can be frozen for up to a few months otherwise stored in the fridge for a week.
