Try with a glass of homemade almond milk. Mmmm.....

  • 1 c. hazelnuts, raw, organic
  • 1/3 c. almonds, organic, raw
  • 1/4 c. coconut flour, organic
  • 1/4 c. cacao powder, raw, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda, pure
  • 1/8 tsp. sea salt, unrefined and pure
  • 6 date, organic
  • 1/4 c. coconut oil, raw, extra-virgin, organic
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract, organic
  • 4 tbs. honey, raw, unfiltered, organic
  • 3 oz. chocolate, dark, 70%, raw, organic

Remove pits from dates and soak in water for at least 30 minutes (3-4 hours would be better).

Preheat oven to 375ºF.

Grind the hazelnuts and almonds in a food processor until they are coarse and release just a little bit of oil. Be careful not to process for too long or you'll have hazelnut butter.

Add coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Pulse a few times until well combined. It should be like a fine flour. Transfer this mixture to a large bowl.

Add dates, coconut oil, vanilla, and honey to the food processor and process until incorporated.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry mixture, and stir to mix well.

Form the dough into balls (mine were about golf ball sized) and flatten somewhat. They don't expand very much.

Bake for approximately 12 minutes.

When cool, top with melted dark chocolate if desired.

Enjoy!
