I went to a Raw Food Prep Class recently and this was on the menu. I do not know exactly where the recipe is from, but the packet said: “Recipes are from LIVING IN THE RAW, RAW THE UNCOOKBOOK and the Internet, by Rose Lee Calabro, Juliano and…” Sorry I can’t be more specific.
These donut holes were delicious… very sweet, tho… I was able to eat only one. If I were to make these myself, I think I would add more nuts, but they were outstanding.
1 cup pre-soaked almonds
1 cup very soft dates, soaked with excess water squeezed out
½ cup banana squash , finely shredded
½ cup coconut, shredded
extra shredded coconut for rolling
sprinkle olive oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoon nutmeg
Put almonds in food processor and process to very fine pieces. Add dates a little at a time—excess water squeezed out. Add olive oil, sea salt and vanilla. Process until mixture forms a ball.
Place ball in bowl. Mix in (with hands) squash, coconut and nutmeg, until blended. Add more coconut or nutmeg, if desired. Roll mixture into small balls. Roll balls in additional coconut to coat. Refrigerate until firm; they also freeze well.
