1 cup dried dates, pitted
1-2 tablespoons raw hulled sunflower seeds (optional)
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1/4 cup almond meal
2 tbsp almond, cashew or hazelnut butter
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon cocao powder
1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
5-7.5 grams PGX Daily Singles (2-3 sticks)
Place dates and sunflower seeds in a metal bowl and pour hot water over just to cover them. Let soak for at least 15 minutes. Seed may need longer soaking if a softer consistency is desired.
Drain water and reserve in a separate container. Add all ingredients to the bowl except for the shredded coconut. Mash and mix (a fork will do) the next 6 ingredients together until a paste forms. If the paste is too thick, add a tsp of the reserved date water and mix again.
Add PGX granules and mix a few more times to blend the granules in.
Put the shredded coconut in a glass or metal small bowl. Take approximately teaspoon amount of paste and form into a small ball with your fingers, it doesn’t have to be perfect. Drop the ball into the shredded coconut and roll around the bowl until completely coated, forming a ball as you go. Place on a nice plate to serve right away or store in a glass container and refrigerate.
Store in the refrigerator.
