Prep Time: 1 hour Servings: Makes 16
  • 1 cup soft, pitted dates, roughly chopped

    ½ cup shredded coconut

    ¼ cup crystallised ginger, chopped

    1 Tbsp honey

    1 Tbsp cocoa

    ½ tsp ground ginger

    2 Tbsp currants or raisins

  • 1. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until the mixture comes together and can be pressed into a ball, but is still slightly lumpy. Add a little water 1 teaspoon at a time if the mixture seems too crumbly. Taste for flavour and adjust if you need to.

  • 2. Roll into about 16 balls. If you wish you can now roll the balls in cocoa, grated chocolate, toasted coconut or finely chopped nuts.

  • 3. Chill until firm and store in the fridge.
