These are so yummy and you can make all sorts of variations. Plus the nuts are good source of magnesium and have anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce menstrual symptoms.
Makes 10-12 balls.
1 cup or 200g of raw cashews or almond nuts
1 cup or 200g of pitted dates (I like medjool best)
2tbs of raw cacao powder
Pinch of salt
Approx 1tbs of water
Blitz the nuts in the food processor. Add the dates and blitz again. Add in the cacao and a pinch of salt. Add in the water - its approx. 1 tbs depending on consistency so the mixture sticks together and you can roll into balls.
You can vary these by adding different nuts or dried fruit. I rolled these in desiccated coconut or cacao powder.
Store the balls in the fridge in an air tight container
