My toddler is very fussy and dairy intolerant. This recipe has been a lifesaver as he is getting the goodness from dates, seeds and coconut oil but believing he is having a special treat also. Plus a great addition to the older children's lunchboxes that is nut free to adhere to the schools' nut free policy.


Ingredients (makes 25 balls)

  • 1 cup Sunflower Seeds
  • 1 cup Dates
  • 1 cup Sultanas
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut oil

Method

  1. Combine all ingredients into a food processor and process until combined. It should start to take shape of a ball but could take up to 5 minutes of processing.
  2. Roll into a ball using either a teaspoon or tablespoon as measurement depending on the desired size. For children, I used a teaspoon.
  3. Refrigerate for an hour before serving.


  • I love this healthy recipe which I can make in quick time.
