Date Coconut Pistachio Balls
Here is a great snack recipe for you and your family from the WHEAT FREE MOM!
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 cups pitted dates
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup raw pistachios
1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1 cup gluten free Rice Krispie cereal
1 tsp maca powder *
1 tsp lucuma powder *
optional ingredients to roll balls in (unsweetened coconut, raw cocao nibs, good quality cocoa powder)
In a food processor pulse the pistachios and pumpkin seeds until finely chopped.
In a small saucepan on low heat add the coconut oil and the dates.
Cook for 5 minutes until dates are soft.
Add warmed dates to food processor.
Process until all is combined well.
In a large bowl add the gluten free Rice Krispies, coconut, maca and lucuma powder.
Add the ingredients from the food processor and stir to combine.
I like to use my hands to mix the ingredients.
Using a ice cream scoop make balls out of the mixture.
Roll in coconut, cocoa powder or raw cacao nibs.
Place in refrigerator to cool.
* I purchased the maca powder and lucuma powder at The Light Cellar in Bowness.
The maca and lucuma powder are optional ingredients.
