i made up this little creation this afternoon for josiah, who can’t have the tahini in our tahini date mounds. i think they turned out really good!! josiah happily ate 2 when he woke from his nap.
in food processor, blend …
handful of pitted dates (maybe a dozen)
about 1/2 c raisins
about 1/2 unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 c melted coconut oil
about 1/8 c freshly ground flax
generous shakes of cinnamon
1/2 apple, chopped
**in recent batches, i’ve omitted the apples. in addition to the ground flax, i’ve been grinding chia seeds – about 1/8 cup. i’ve also been adding organic raw pumpkin seeds – a handful. so good!!
blend, then form in to balls and freeze. mine were solid but soft after blending; freezing made them very firm. i will store in a bag in the refrigerator.
