Yummo Jaffa Balls - perfect for lunchboxes!

Looking for a simple yet delicious snack? These Jaffa Balls from MummaO are refined sugar free, gluten free, dairy free… and SUPER yum!

Ingredients

  • ½ bag pitted dates (soaked)
  • ½ bag desiccated coconut
  • ½ bag raw cashews
  • 2 oranges (grated zest from both + 1 orange juice only)
    OR 8 drops Young Living Tangerine Essential Oil
  • 2 tbsp. rice malt syrup
  • 1 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • ½ block dark chocolate finely chopped (100g)

Method

  1. Blitz dates, coconut and cashews together until blended well and pour into a bowl. Or in a Thermomix: Blitz dates, coconut and cashews at speed 8 for 10 seconds until well mixed and pour into a mixing bowl.
  2. Add all other ingredients and mix.
  3. Roll into balls by squeezing mixture in palm of your hand and then gently rolling into balls and placing on a tray lined with baking paper. Sprinkle with extra orange rind to decorate or freeze and then drizzle melted chocolate on top for a real treat! I usually add 3 drops of Young Living Tangerine Essential Oil into the drizzling chocolate for that extra Jaffa hit!
  4. Store in an airtight container in fridge or freezer.
