Veteran – "No Bake" Chocolate Drops

“NO BAKE” Chocolate Drops

I am always on the look-out for recipes that provide the “HEALTHY FATS” for the kids…that they will actually eat.

I was so excited when I found this recipe!  It is a WHOLE FOOD treat for my kids- that is basically half nuts & seeds and half dates.

I struggle at times getting enough nuts & seeds in my children EVERY DAY.  They eat oatmeal with walnuts and granola bars…but this will be a new staple at my house.  Be careful!  Mommies can eat too many of them if they are not careful…they are that good!

“NO BAKE” Chocolate Drops
5 ounces ground raw cashew pieces
2 ounces ground raw blanched almonds
2 ounce ground walnuts
2 ounce ground raw sunflower seeds
2 tablespoons flax seed -ground
8 ounces date/coconut rolls or soft pitted dates- FINELY CHOPPED

     (I have only used the coconut rolls- YUMMY!)
3 – 4 TBS Cocoa powder (or to taste)
1 teaspoons vanilla

Measure ingredients using a kitchen scale.  Finely chop nuts & seeds in powerful blender (or food processor would work).  I grind my flax seed in a coffee grinder. In a food processor- combine ground nuts & seeds with the finely chopped date rolls.  Add cocoa and vanilla and process until well mixed.  Form into bite sized balls.

Makes approx. 25 balls.

I place the formed balls in the freezer- wait till they are somewhat frozen then put them all in a freezer bag for easy access.  Since they are almost half nuts and half dates…I am just fine with my growing kids having 2 a day. 

They are also a great sweet for me- when I feel like chocolate 🙂
