Completion time: 10 minutes
Yield: 2 dozen balls
2 cups of dates | 2 cups of almonds Del Alba | 60 grams dark chocolate powder | 3/4 cup of coconut flakes, (reserve 1/2 cup of coconut flakes to pass the balls at the end) | 1/4 tsp. of sea salt | 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract | 1-2 tablespoons of almond milk. See here our recipe for almond milk
1.- In a food processor add half a cup of coconut flakes to grind them. Process for a little less than a minute. (Don't go over a minute because the mixture will turn into coconut butter.)
2.- Remove the ground flakes and reserve.
3.-Incorporate the dates until ground and join to form a ball.
4.-Break the ball with your hands and add the almonds, the powdered chocolate, 1/4 cup of coconut flakes and sea salt.
5.- Process for several minutes, scraping the walls with the help of a spatula, if necessary.
6.- Add the vanilla and almond milk.
7.- Process the mixture until all the ingredients come together in a ball. If not, add one more tablespoon. The mixture should look like the photo below.
8.- Once the necessary consistency is obtained, remove the mixture and form 24 balls.
9.- Pass them one by one in the coconut mixture that you processed at the beginning.
10.- Put them in a container and store them in the fridge so they last for more weeks.
