Date Balls

 

Are you ready for a new favorite family treat?

Recently we came across a recipe for these Carrot Cake Date Balls on Pinterest, which looked delicious. As usual, once we read the recipe, they were not something we could make due to our food allergies.

 

We took the carrot cake date ball recipe and changed it up to create our own, nut free, gluten-free, dairy-free and corn-free recipe.

 

The result = a new easy and delicious treat we love!

 

Give it a try and let us know what you think.

to make these delicious date balls:

 

Make your OWN Carrot Cake Date Balls

 

Ingredients needed:

1 cup of dates (soak for 5 minutes in hot water)

½ cup coconut flour

1 cup shredded carrots (about 2 medium carrots)

¼ cup ground flax seed

1 t cinnamon

¼ t nutmeg

¼ cup Shredded coconut

Pinch of sea salt

¼ cup Shredded coconut for coating (optional)

Water as needed

 

Soak the dates for 5 minutes in hot water.

Peel and grate the carrots. This is a great step for the kids to do for you!

Add everything to your food processor: carrots, dates, spices, shredded coconut, coconut flour and ground flax seed. Add about 1-2 T water as needed. Blend for a couple of minutes. Stop and scrape down the sides. Blend until it all comes together.

Be careful: do not put your hand into the mixture as the blade is very sharp. Scoop out a Tablespoon of dough and form into a ball.  Roll in shredded coconut or nuts to coat if desired or leave plain.

Eat and enjoy. They last in the fridge for about a week (if they last that long!). You can also freeze them.

 

Easy to Change it Up

Think about substitutions if you don’t have access to some of these ingredients:

Dates – raisins

ground flaxseed  – walnuts or cashews

coconut flour – certified gluten-free oats

Instead of shredded coconut for coating you can use chopped nuts.
