  • 200 grams Salted Peanuts
  • 100 grams Cashews
  • 100 grams Pumpkin Seeds
  • 300 grams Pitted Dates
  • 100 grams Sultanas
  • 1 tablespoon Coconut Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Cocoa
  • 1/2 cup Desiccated Coconut or Shredded Coconut


  1. Add peanuts, cashews and pumpkin seeds, to food processor and process until mixture is finely ground.  Add dates, sultanas, coconut oil and cocoa.  Process until all ingredients are well blended. 

  2. Roll tablespoon portions into balls (for easier rolling dampen hands slightly).  Then roll in coconut to coat.  Store in fridge.

Recipe Notes

Be careful using pitted dates.  Sometimes a sneaky pip will slip through.  I always cut my dates in half to make sure they are truly pip free.
