Healthy date confectionery

by soffiagudrun

I was a super housewife tonight. I cooked dinner and made two types of those sweet little “date balls” One healthy type and other with a bit of marzipan. I use the word confectionery, it sounds mores sophisticated than date balls…

Date confectionery

  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 1/2 cup dried shredded coconut meat (that you buy in a supermarket)
  • 1/2 cup hazel nuts
  • 1/4 cup oat meal
  • 2 tsp good cocoa
  • 2 tsp syrup
  • 3 tbsp water if you need it more wet
Date confectionery with marzipan
  • Half of the recipe above
  • 100 – 200 g marzipan, or as much as you like
Mix the ingredients in a food processor until it becomes a sticky kind of a dough.
I made balls from the dough and rolled some of it with cocoa powder and some with the dried coconut meat.
You can improvise a lot here, the measurement doesn´t have to be accurate and it´s good to add all kinds of dried fruits, seeds and nuts.
