Sweet & Spicy Raw Dessert Balls*

Music: Christmas songs on shuffle on my iPod.

(Mostly) raw, delicious, and filled with super foods! And best of all, very easy to make.

10 dates, pitted
6 tbsp sunflower seeds (or any other nut: walnut, pecan, almond, etc.)
2 tbsp cacao nibs
4 tbsp shredded raw coconut
4 tbsp flax OR chia seeds
1 tbsp brown rice syrup (OR raw honey)
1 tbsp raw coconut oil
Dash of cayenne pepper
2-3 pinches of salt

We halved the above recipe but left the amount of cacao nibs (2 tbsp) the same for a more chocolate-y taste.

--Place all dry ingredients (EXCEPT cayenne & salt) in food processor and blend until powder consistency.
--Add dates, cayenne, salt, and blend again.
--Add syrup & coconut oil and blend again.
--Roll into balls, place on place in freezer to solidify. Store in freezer.

Optional: roll in cacao powder or serve plain. Close your eyes and savor...
