Raw coconut vanilla delights

raw, vegan, vegetarian

I’m trying to cut down on sugar and doing my best to eat as healthy as I can BUT I am a big fan of sweets. I don’t want to eliminate all sweets from my diet – It would make me hmm… unhappy. So to balance this out I treat myself with healthy replacement of store-bought goods. Today decided to go for coconut delights – taste is similar to Raffaello.

150 g chopped cashew nuts

30 g coconut flakes or coconut shrims + 60 g to sprinkle

3 dates (soaked if hard)

1 fig

1 vanila pod (Split the vanilla pod lengthwise into two halves and scrape them)

20 ml coconut oil

20 ml carob syrup

pinch of salt

Mix all the ingredients in the bowl or food processor until the mixture sticks together. Gently press it and form little balls. Roll them in coconut flakes. Store in the fridge.

Enjoy!
