No-bake Coconut-Pecan Brownie Balls with Moringa


Total time: 20 minutes


Makes: 20 balls


Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups Medjool dates, pitted

  • 2 tbsp. chia seeds

  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 1/2 cup oats

  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped

  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut

  • 1 tbsp. moringa powder

  • 1/2 cup applesauce

  • 1/4 cup almond flour (or oat flour*)

Toppings:

  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut

  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped


Directions:

1. Place dates in a large, microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 2 minutes.

2. Remove from microwave, and use a large wooden spoon to mash and stir the dates.

3. Microwave for an additional minute. Mash and stir the dates until a large sticky mixture is formed.

4. To the date mixture, add the applesauce, cocoa powder, moringa and vanilla extract. Stir until combined.

5. Add the chia seeds, oats, almond flour, pecans and shredded coconut. Mix until completely combined.

6. If you are not short on time, place bowl in the fridge for 10-30 minutes so it is easier to form ball shapes.

7. Scoop out approximately 1 tbsp. of date mixture and roll into a ball using your hands.

8. Roll the date ball into desired toppings, such as chopped pecans and shredded coconut.

9. Store in airtight container for one week in the fridge or one month in the freezer.

*To make oat flour, place 1/4 cup oat in blender or food processor and pulse until a flour-like texture is created. This shouldn’t take very long.
