Serves:

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 3 medjool dates, pitted, quartered and rolled into a ball
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 flax egg [1 tablespoon ground flax + 3 tablespoon water]
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon celtic sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat. Set side.

  3. In a larger bowl, combine coconut oil, flax egg and vanilla extract. Add dry to wet and mix until incorporated.
  4. Separate dough into 2 balls, cover with parchment paper, and place in the freezer for 20 minutes.
  5. Once complete, spoon 2 tablespoon of dough in your hand and flatten, then place 1 date ball in the middle and fold the dough over top. Roll the dough in between your hands to make a ball [make sure you can’t see the date!], then press down to make a bit flatter. Place on the prepared cookie sheet and continue with the remaining dough.
