No Bake Cookie Balls – 2 variations

Alot of clean eating sweets I have found have alot of nuts or use peanut butter, which is yummy but not good for the kids to take to school (due to no nut policy).  So I wanted something clean and yummy that the kids could take to school so tonight I did 2 variations of no bake cookie balls.  These taste amazing, nice and sweet combination of dates and honey!  These are now packed in their lunch boxes for school because if I dont put them in there and out of sight I’d be having a midnight snack!!  mmmmmmm

No Bake Cookie Balls

1  cup pitted dates

2 cups quick oats (or 1 cup quick oats and 1 cup quinoa flakes)

4 Tablespoons honey

1/2 cup unsweetened coconut

2 tsp vanilla essence

2 tsp cinnamon

dark choc chips (optional) these are added after being in food processor.

Put all ingredients in a food processor except the choc chips (if using).  Process until mixture is wet and holds together, for me mixing it long enough it formed a dough ball.  If its not sticky enough to hold together just add 1 tablespoon of water to help it or you could add an extra tablespoon of honey if you really wanted it a extra sweet.  Scoop tablespoon full and roll into balls.  (hard to say how many exactly i made as the kids and i kept taste testing, maybe makes about 30 balls?  Eat as is or store in the fridge for a chilled ball.  You can keep these in the freezer too.  You could also roll these into extra coconut too!

approx 40 calories per ball and just under 1 gram of fat.
