Healthy Organic Date Balls
Ciao Bella!!!
This is a very different post than what I normally talk about or review. It's a post about one of my all time favorite recipes for Healthy Organic Date Balls.
I have been eating healthy and everything organic for over a year now. I also stopped eating meat and all things made with animal products, it's a bit of a endeavor but am totally loving every moment of it. I juice a lot of fresh fruits and veggies most of the time.
Raw and Organic... it's the way to go!!!
Here is the recipe for:

Healthy Organic Date Balls.
1 bag of Dried Pitted Dates
2 Tbsp Organic Coconut Oil
2 cups of Ground Flax Seed
1 and 1/4 cups Fine Ground Almonds (set aside 1/4 cup in a bowl) PS. I grind my own Raw Whole Almonds in a food processer.
2 tsp. Organic Vanilla Extract
1 cup Organic Oatmeal
2/3 to 1cup Water
Cut up the dates in small pieces, put in pot, add 2/3 to 1cup of water and 2 Tbsp of Coconut Oil. Cook until mixture is thick and sticky, stirring continuously. Take off burner and let cool for 10 min. Add 2 tsp of Organic Vanilla and stir into Date mixture. Add 1 cup of Organic Oatmeal, 1 cup of Fine Ground Almonds, 2 cups of Ground Flax Seed and mix in with date mixture. This mixture will become thick and sticky. Form into small balls, roll lightly in a bowl of 1/4 cup Fine Ground Almonds and place on a flat surface such as a cookie sheet or plate and then set in fridge for about an hour. Then enjoy!!
This makes about 45-50 small Date balls.
No cook!
This is fast and simple, and a great sweet treat for those of us who don't like to eat cakes or cookies, but like something sweet once in the while and still have something healthy.
Hope that you all enjoy!!
Have a super great day!
