After quite a few days of summer heat here in Sweden we're now back to grey and cold weather. Which for me means back to lots and lots of warm tea, lit candles and cozy sweaters. Rest mode is definitely on.
I have been quite ill lately, and I actually made these balls yesterday just to get some extra calories into my body. But I was so pleasantly surprised just have incredibly good they taste. Like a healthier alternative to sweets or cookies. Yes! And they are also super simple to make and only require three ingredients: dates, coconut and vanilla. Enjoy!
Simple Coconut Date Balls
15 fresh/soft dates (use less if using big dates like medjools)
1/2 cup (1 dl) raw coconut chips or shredded coconut
1/5 tsp (1 krm) real vanilla powder
Blend the ingredients together in a food processor and form into balls. Store in the freezer.
