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.

Stir well.

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.
