CHOCOLATE BALLS RECIPE:
- Add dried almond pulp or almond powder,cocoa powder,pitted dates,salt,coconut oil to the food processor.I used almond pulp which was extracted while preparing almond milk.
- To make almond pulp moist free bake the almond pulp by spreading in baking plate at 350 F for about 20 mins or just saute in pan for about 10 mins in medium flame to remove the moistness from the almond pulp.
- Grind to consistency such that you can make balls or else add little oil for binding.
- Dust it with cocoa powder if you like the cocoa bitter taste or else avoid this step for kids as they may not like the bitter taste.
- You can add other nuts like cashew or walnut of your choice but make sure the you can make balls from the grind ed mixture
- Adding little by little oil helps in binding properly.
