Ingredients

1 cup of dried activated Macadamia nuts</br> 3/4 cup of desiccated coconut</br> 2/3 cup of pitted Medjool dates</br> 2 tbsp of raw cacao powder</br> 1 tbsp of carob powder (can be substituted for more cacao)</br> 2 tbsp of melted cacao butter </br> 1 tbsp of raw cacao nibs</br> 1/4 tsp of raw vanilla powder</br> pinch of pink salt

Method

Place the Macadamias and coconut in a food processor. Process until small pieces form. Add the dates, cacao, carob (if using), melted cacao butter, vanilla and salt. Process until mixture reaches a dough-like consistency. Add the cacao nibs and pulse until mixed. Roll the mixture into equal-sized balls (use approximately 1 tbsp of mixture per ball), firmly squeezing in order to bring them together. Roll in cacao powder. Keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Tip

Add 1 to 2 tsp of ground coffee to the mix, adds a wonderful flavour. Roll the mixture into equal-sized balls (use approximately 1 tbsp of mixture per ball), firmly squeezing in order to bring them together. Roll in cacao powder. Keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Beauty Alert

Raw Cacao is filled to the brim with skin loving goodness. It is one of the highest food sources of magnesium that increases brainpower and helps regulate metabolism. Antioxidants are a must for healthy and glowing skin, and cacao is filled with them. Consuming cacao be it cacao powder, butter or nibs will add moisture to your skin, promote collagen production, prevent blemishes and help fight ageing.
