My little monster isn’t much for sweets but she loves these little treats I make for her. I use carob instead of cacao and sweeten with juicy Medjool dates and coconut. Simple, quick and easy to travel with.
1/2 cup organic shredded coconut
1/3 cup carob powder, raw or roasted
About 10 dates, juicier the better (Medjool are my favorites!)
1. De-pit the dates and with your fingers or a blender mash the dates into a paste.
2. Add in the carob and coconut, a little at a time until you reach the right consistency (you should be able to roll a ball without it sticking to your hands).
If you are feeling fancy you can roll these beauties in shredded coconut, goji powder, hemp or chia seeds. Anything your kids go crazy for!
