- 10 seeded softdates
- 5 tbsp popped amaranth
- 5 tbsp dessicated coconut
- 1-3 tbsp honey depending on the consistency required
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder (optional)
Remove stones from dates. Mash dates with your hands until they have merged into a mass. Slowly knead amaranth into the dates until they have merged with the dates.Then take a small piece of the mixture and make into a small ball, the size of a small lime. Repeat the process until the mixture finishes. If you are not using cocoa powder omit the honey.
Reduce or omit the amaranth and add a handful of fresh or dry coconut to the mixture.
Omit the cocoa and honey and instead use 10 dates, 5 tbsp coconut and 5 tbsp amaranth. ( This one is vegan). If you use cocoa powder you need honey.
Omit the dates and use currants, raisins, apricots figs etc. To use apricots and figs, soak them in a little water overnight.
