Nice Recipe #2 : Mint Balls
½ cup buckwheat flour (place raw buckwheat groats in a food processor until a course flour)
1 cup of dates (plus boiling water to soak)
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup desiccated coconut
¼ cup fresh mint leaves, washed and dried (or replace with mint essence)
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 tablespoon honey
Extra desiccated coconut for rolling
Place dates in a small bowl with enough boiling water to cover and allow to soak for several minutes. Place all ingredients in a food processor on high until well combined and smooth. Use a spatula to scrap down the sides as needed.
Spread extra coconut on a plate. Place 1 – 2 tablespoons of the mixture on a plate and press out into a log and coat with coconut. Alternatively
spoon small amounts of mixture onto the plate and roll through coconut.
Refrigerate for several hours before slicing and serving.
