‘Tiz the season & all that jazz so get some balls in your life. Christmassy ones. You can make these without my extra special BUTTERED UP (obviously they will be a little less delicious) but you will need to add some gingerbread spices if you want these to taste ‘gingerbready’. Yep that’s a word. Save yourself the effort and just go to Primal Pantry (Teneriffe, Nundah or Toowoomba) and get your mits on a few jars. These are a great Christmas treat or other time treat if you are tired of plain old date or chocolate balls. Go get yourself Merry.
1 jar Buttered Up Gingerbread (or 190g other nut/nut free butter)
1 jar Buttered Up Nothing But Coconut (or 190g coconut butter)
10 fresh dates
1/4 cup cacao nibs (optional)
1/2 cup coconut (shredded or dessicated)
2 tbs coconut oil
Blend everything except the cacao nibs until a smooth dough forms. Add the nibs, pulse a few times to combine. Roll into balls. Place in mouth. Chew. These will store in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for probably a few months if you don’t eat them all first.0
