  • 75g oats (use gluten free if preferred)

  • 50g soft pitted dates

  • 30g dried figs

  • 75g almonds

  • 1 heaped tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1 tsp maca powder

  • 30g coconut oil, melted

  • 15g cocoa powder

Place the oats in a blender or food processor. Blend until finely ground.
Add the dates and figs and blend until crumbly. Add the remaining ingredients and blend well.

Transfer to a bowl and combine into a ball using your hands. Add a splash of cold water or almond milk if the mixture is too dry. It should hold together well.

Divide the mixture into 10 pieces and roll into balls. Place on a plate and dust lightly with cocoa powder.

Refrigerate for 10 minutes or until firm.

Store in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze on same day.
