Date Balls (Grain + Sugar Free)
- 350g Dates, dried and pitted
- 130g nuts, roughly chopped – we used half pecan, half almonds.
- 1 Tbs. good quality Cocoa Powder – we used Organic Dutch Process Cocoa
- 50g Butter
- 1 Egg, lightly beaten
- pinch of Salt
Melt the dates and butter in a saucepan until the dates have become soft and gooey, set aside to cool slightly. Add the egg slowly to the mixture and stir (the mixture should be warm, but cool enough to touch without burning your finger, be careful the mixture is not too hot, or the egg will scramble). Mix in the cocoa powder and salt. Mix in the Nuts.
