  1. These are delicious! I also made a version with dried apricots and dates instead of just dates and they were delicious as well.

  2. I made up my own version of these to use up the coconut left after making coconut milk. I add dates,raw cacao and macca powder and a bit of coconut oil and blend in the food processor until it holds together, then roll in coconut. The kids love them and they are nut free for school 🙂

  3. Choc seed recipe with orange zest & juice & rolled in crushed pistachios
