Offices can be bad places for strict eating plans. There’s always something to celebrate, a birth, someone leaving, a birthday etc. So,t’s sometimes it’s better to make something yourself and bring it in – so if you do indulge at least you know exactly what’s in it, and can make something with some nutritional value… Which brings me to these:
Soooo yummy! And easy. I was meant to put some desiccated coconut in but forgot to get some! Oops.
1/2 cup almonds (or other nuts)
3/4 cup pitted dates
2 tablespoons cocoa or cacao
2 tablespoons Craisins
1 tablespoon coconut oil
optional – add a couple of squares of chcolate for extra yumminess.
Take all ingredients, whizz up in food processor and roll into balls. Allow to set in fridge. Coudn’t be easier. And they’re tasty, but not terribly low calorie so don’t gobble them all down at once! I try to limit myself to one. You can add agave to sweeten, or honey or sugar if that’s how you roll, but dates are the sweetest of all dried fruit and so I don’t think it needs sweetening. These taste like chocolate-y deliciousness.
