3 tbs nut butter

3 tbs cacao

6 tbs water

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tbs honey (optional)


Blend the nuts in a food processor until they resemble thick breadcrumbs. Add the dates and coconut. Process until starting to come together when pressed between your fingers.

Add the cinnamon, cacao, nut butter and honey. Mix until well combined.

Finally add water and process until you have a dough like mixture. You can add a little more water if needed.

Roll the mixture into balls. These can be kept in an airtight container for approximately a week.
