- 100 grams salted peanuts
- 100 grams soft dried dates, cut smaller *
- 2 tablespoons cacao powder, unsweetened
- 100 grams preserved citrus peel, chopped fine
- 1 tablespoon water, room temperature
*Always cut dried dates smaller - sometimes pits are still in the bag.
Place peanuts (nuts) in food processor and blend till crumbly texture.
Add the dates, cacao powder, citrus peel and water. Blend for a minute or so.
It won’t come together in a ball. That’s okay.
Take tablespoon mixture – ‘squish’ in 1 hand, transfer to other hand and ‘squish’ again to ‘mold’ it together.
Roll carefully into balls and place in single layer onto plate/baking sheet and refrigerate for an hour.
After that, place in sealed container or ‘Ziplock’ bags and keep at room temperature. Flavours are more pronounced at room temperature.
Or keep in fridge/freezer but let it sit for a while at room temperature before eating.
