Don’t you just love when you give something really healthy to your children. Makes up for all the naughty snacks and foods they some how seem to get their hands on!

With this recipe both parent and child will be soooo happy! I can guarantee this, as this is how I felt yesterday when I made these no bake cookies!

Mine have already disappeared from the fridge mysteriously!! So another batch is about to be made, especially as I promised to take some over to Angie’s Fiesta Friday Party!

Chocolate Snowballs

image

I have never been so inspired as I am now, from all of you my fellow friends.  I am learning so much from everyone and am becoming open to the idea that healthy food can really be tasty food.  I am finding myself being drawn to super food options all the time when buying ingredients!  And as a result am coming up with all different types of recipes!

I absolutely adore chocolate and nuts together!  Also coconut is my ultimate favourite.  With this in mind I created these delightful yummy coconut chocolate and date balls.  Which my little one insists on calling ‘chocolate snowballs’

image

You have to make these! There is no doubt in my mind that you and your family will not love them.  I have had family and friends requesting me to make some for them and I have a back order to fill! I find they are so therapeutic to make too! Just to see my little ones enjoy them sooo much but at the same time KNOW how healthy and nutritious they are makes what I do worthwhile!

Have a beautiful weekend and enjoy time with your loved ones, much love D x
