Healthy Christmas Treats - Paleo Rum Balls

Healthy Rum Balls

  • 150g raw almonds
  • 80grams almond meal
  • ½ cup of desiccated coconut 
  • 2 scoops vanilla Sun Warrior Protein/ protein powder (you can omit this if you want)
  • A dash of vanilla essence
  • One shot of rum (you can omit if you don't want the alcohol!) 
  • 2 cups of loosely packed medjool dates, soaked
  • Water from soaked dates
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons cacao powder

For Mixing through/ coating balls:
  • Loving Earth Deluxe Bukinis
  • Cacao nibs
  • More desiccated coconut

  1. Firstly, soak the dates in hot/boiling water for 10 – 15 minutes - this is particularly necessary if you buy the sealed packet in the baking section and not fresh dates as they are more dry.
  2. Place almonds, almond meal, cacao powder, cinnamon, coconut and protein powder in a blender or food processor or blender and mix until the almonds are crumbly.
  3. Add the dates and the rum if you are using. Slowly add drained water until the mixture starts to come together. Stop adding water when you reach your desired consistency. 
  4. Mix through cacao nibs and bukinis 
  5. Roll into small balls and coat in desiccated coconut 
  6. Store in the fridge – Makes around 20-25 balls
