These are great! I had a party last night and found out at the last minute that several of the guests have sworn off refined sugar, so I whipped these up and boy were they popular! They took no time to throw together, and I had kids and adults alike fighting over the last one :). I didn't have any dates so I used a combination of prunes and raisins. I also don't have a processor (sigh) so I used a coffee grinder for the oatmeal and a hand blender for the rest. I don't recommend it, but it is possible LOL! I cut the recipe to make 18 (shouldn't have!) and I got 21 good-sized snackers. Also, I forgot to split up the coconut and threw it all in with the mix, but that didn't seem to hurt anything. I tried to roll them in more coconut afterward but I had trouble getting it to stick. THanks so much for posting!
Very good! And my 4-year-old keeps asking for more! Great! I used Almond Butter - Dairy Free #107660 . Thanks! Reviewed for Healthy Choices ABC tag.
It is great indeed. Roasted fresh coconut as I was not sure what shredded coconut meant but did want to dry out the coconut a bit. Used butter with a few drops of almond essence (don't get almond butter). Needed just a few tsps of the orange juice though. Rolled the balls in dessicated coconut. Very nice. Got around 20 balls but my judgement for size is pretty bad. Thank you. :) Fay
This recipe from the cookbook 'The Complete Vegan Cookbook' by Susann Geiskopf-Hadler & Mindy Toomay (page 291) is great!
