Lets face it we eat enough food that isn't good for us in the silly season, but we don't have to feel quite as guilty eating these Healthier Rum balls. They still have sugar in them so moderation is recommended but they are a lot better then condensed milk filled balls that we normally see at Christmas time. These are a yummy sweet delicious treat and I guaranteed they will be eatenn just as quick as traditional Rum balls.
Dates pitted 400grams
Oats 1 cup
- Rum 4 tablespoons
Coconut 3/4 cup
Cocoa powder natural, we use Loving Earth
Maple syrup 1/4 cup
Almonds 1 cup
Coconut for rolling
Add dates, Rum, oats and nuts to a food processor and blitz, the mixture will be a fine crumb and slightly sticky.
Pop mixture into a bowl and add syrup, almond milk, cocoa and coconut and mix well.
Roll mixture into approx 1 inch balls and roll in coconut.
Pop in a sealable container until ready to eat, can also be frozen for up to 4 weeks in a freezer.
Tip: If you don't like Rum replace with Baileys or Almond Milk yum!
