Paleo Balls & Chocolate Cake

Once again I am experimenting with my new food processor.  As my MOTH is diabetic, on a low/no salt, etc etc diet we have been eating more “cleanly”.  This is great for both of us, and I myself have lost 7kg in the past 3 months.  The MOTH’S dietitian & doctor are very happy with his results.  However occasionally you need a treat.

So here are some Paleo Balls, also Gluten free.

The cake, is a little decadent bordering on mud cake, using a basic everyday batter mix with some choc chips.  Small slices only 😁

Happy Stitching ❤ Debbierose

    1. Hi Doreen, here is recipe for date/almond balls. Couldn’t find the choc slice recipe as it was a Google on the day.

      INGREDIENTS

      1 & 1/2 cups dates (I like to soak them in boiling water for about 10 minutes to soften them)1 cup raw almonds1/4 cup cocoa powder1 tsp vanilla1/2 tsp cinnamonFeel free to experiment with different ingredients, I often use cashews, shredded coconut, honey, nut butters, raisins, dried goji berries, dark chocolate etc!

      INSTRUCTIONS

      In your food processor blend the almonds until they’re chopped into small piecesAdd all remaining ingredients and blend until it becomes one big clump stuck togetherRoll into balls and serve or refrigerate for later

      Bon Appetite
