Happy Bank Holiday weekend! I have some extremely exciting news to share with you all! My online shop is up and running! You can now order a range of six different homemade treats, all vegan and gluten-free with five being refined sugar-free too! They are made in Dorset using only natural wholefood ingredients, in small batches of 9 portions. We post to any UK address, 1st class, using plastic-free packaging. You can browse our range here.
Now time for this delish raw brownie bite recipe. Just another really simple one; a combo of dates, cacao, oats and ginger, all blended up together and rolled into balls. Quick and super easy, no bake, little chocolate ginger balls. They are so healthy and nutritious too. PLUS they are naturally free from gluten, dairy, refined sugar, soya as well as nuts! I purposely used oats instead of nuts to make them nut-free! They are great when you are short on time and want something sweet and satisfying to grab on your way out the door on busy days!
Makes approx 10
230g pitted Dates
60g Oats (gluten-free if desired)
3 tbsp Cacao powder
2 tsp ground Ginger
2 tbsp Cacao nibs
1 ½ tbsp Coconut oil, melted
Pinch of salt
- Add all the dry ingredients to a processor: the oats, cacao powder, ginger and salt. Blend for a few seconds until combined and the oats are ground slightly. Then add the cacao nibs.
- Depending on what dates you’re using, you might want to soften them in boiling water first before adding them to the mix. If your dates are soft already just put them straight in (but make sure they’re pitted).
- Give that a good blend before finally adding the melted coconut oil.
- Roll the mixture into balls (not too big) and leave to firm up in the fridge for half an hour.
- And that’s it!
Want to make these extra yum? Dip in melted dark chocolate for even more chocolatey indulgence!
