Coconut and Cocoa Vanilla bites
1 cup of desiccated coconut
Few tbsp coconut oil to bind
Couple of tbsp of date paste (made with medjool dates and a little water, cooked for a few minutes and then cooled)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Cocoa powder (I used Green and Blacks)
Put the first 4 ingredients into a mini food processor and mix until mixture starts to clump together. Remove mixture and form into small balls. Roll in sieved cocoa powder. Place on grease-proof paper and refrigerate for about an hour to harden up.
If you make them please let me know what you think and any suggestions for improvement.
Gizmo update: Thank you all for your good thoughts and wishes. So far he has taken well to his new hypoallergenic prescription diet and is almost back to normal. I won't elaborate on this now but will save a post about this for another time.
