It’s weekend and you might be wondering what to treat yourself with and how to satisfy your sweet tooth? Well, don’t you worry, cause I’ve got you covered. These chocolate raw balls are so delicious, they are nut free, dairyfree, vegan, glutenfree and refined sugar free! It got a rich chocolate flavor, with a hint of coffee and a yummy crunch from the buckwheat! The recipe is from talented Tiril Refsum, in her book “Rågodt”.
These are perfect to make on a Sunday as you can save them up for the week when the hangry mood strikes or you need a quick snack in between your busy schedule. Also not a bad idea to reward yourself with a treat after a good long day of work either;)
The ingredients you’ll need are simple:
• Shredded coconut
• Cacao powder
• Espresso shot (2 tbsp) or 1 tsp of coffee powder
• Coconut sugar / brown sugar (if you don’t have any of ingredients play around with honey or maple syrup but then see with the consistency of the dough)
• Salt to enhance the chocolate flavor
• Whole buckwheats
Just mix all ingredients in a food processor except the buckwheat until the dough becomes sticky. Then you can add in some buckwheat to your preferring and pulse lightly with the food processor so that it’s mixed with the dough. After you can roll them into balls and cover them with either cacao powder or shredded coconut.
As this is a recipe from the book of Tiril I won’t share the exact measurements but the ingredients are there for you to try it out and make the delicious healthier treat/snack.
Have a lovely Sunday guys,
With love & care Melanie x
