Ah yes, it's finally the 3rd Sunday of Advent, which also happens to mean that next Sunday is Christmas! Ah! It's almost here! Just as the other Sundays this December, here is another healthy Christmas treat that will rock your sweet tooth, during this sweet-overload time of year. These raw, sugar free, gluten free, dairy free, soy free, egg free balls are utterly delicious and I swear they taste like brownie. These can totally be enjoyed year round but they are also perfect for the dessert table during your Christmas festivities. The coconut snowflakes are the perfect little decorative touch for this December month. If you are like us here in Denmark we don't get much of a white Christmas, so this a little sneaky way to bring a little white Christmas into your holiday ;)
As I mentioned, these raw balls are free from all the sweeteners and other "stuff" that our guts and bodies typically don't process very well and leave us feeling heavy and tired. No sugar crashes this Christmas. Like all my other Bliss Ball recipes, these Snowflake Brownies Balls are easy and quick to make. The holidays can be crazy and very busy, so do yourself a favor and make some goods that fuel you, are good for you and leave your sweet tooth satisfied.
I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday, whether it be spent studying for exams (I feel you and that's what I'll be doing) or spending time with loved ones or whatever else you may be doing this beautiful 3rd Sunday of Advent.
**PSA for students reading this. Take a break, clear your head and make yourself some delish snacks to nibble on as you study the day and maybe even night away. Snacks are an essential part of studying - at least that is my belief! ;)
To keep them fresh and delicious, store them in an air tight container in the fridge. They are good for about a week (if they last that long).
1. In your food processor blend the almonds until finely blended (not too much though because then all of a sudden you'll have almond butter) Process for about 1 minute.
2. Melt on low the coconut oil and coconut butter
3. While that is slowly melting, you can start pitting the dates and place them into the food processor with the almonds
4. Add the other ingredients into the mix (raw cocoa, coconut and pinch of salt)
5. Add the melted coconut oil/ coconut butter mix and blend it all together (if you have trouble getting it to blend you can add a tiny bit of almond milk
6. Once you have a "dough" place in the fridge for about 20 minutes if you have time - this just makes it easier to roll them into balls. If you don't have time, you can just do it immediately
7. Roll into little balls and then roll in the shredded coconut and then you have your Snowflake Brownie Balls
