The Ultimate Raw Vegan Date Balls

Sunday afternoons have always given me a bit of a twilight zone feeling – enough time has passed to rest and recover from the week’s activities – but not quite enough time to feel ready for Monday morning.

Naturally , I find myself in the kitchen trying out new recipes I have marked with posted notes , stuck up on the fridge or saved on my computer screen during the week.

This Sunday it is fun and lovely raw vegan date balls with a dash of feelgood Peruvian superfood Maca.


As a nutritional couch trained by Raw food guru David Wolfe – the one thing I am very passionate about is the endless possibilities of combining Superfoods into everyday meals and treats.

Nothing feels better than biting into a yummy , gooey date ball – knowing that every ingredient from the brain food walnuts to the Magnesium rich cacao is packed with healthy goodness.

..and without further delay :

Into a food processor place 1 and 1/2 cups dates ( covered in water for 2 hours )
1/4 cup of the date liquid ( you can save the balance of the date liquid for sweetening your morning smoothie )
1 cup dessicated coconut
1 cup walnuts
3 tablespoon Cacao powder
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon Maca


Combine till a gooey paste consistency – and enjoy every moment of rolling into balls of your desired size.

I try to get 24 little gems out of a batch.

Now I am ready for Monday and every day of the week after ! 🙂

Be sure to pack one or two into your lunch box – that afternoon energy slump will be something of the past – with every bad sugar slump you have ever known.

Also makes for lovely gift ideas.
