Advent – Day 4



In honour of Day 4, I am sharing a 4 ingredient recipe with you.

I have a bit of a sweet tooth and I am even more pleased when I find a new recipe for a healthy treat! Amazeballs are my current favourite and I have adapted them from various different sources:, and The Medicinal Chef, Healthy Every Day – Dale Pinnock, Quadrille Publishing.

Now my cooking style is a bit throw it in and hope for the best so amounts are approximate, give it a try and adapt to your palate!

  • 2 x cups of soft dates  (I used a small tea cup)
  • 2 x tablespoons of dried cranberries
  • 2 x tablespoons of nut butter
  • 4 x teaspoons of cocoa powder

Optional Extras:

  • Sprinkle of cinnamon for that Christmassy flavour
  • Desiccated coconut for decoration

Put all the ingredients in a food processor and process on the highest setting to produce a smooth, dough-like texture. Roll into small balls (in the desiccated coconut), about 2-3cm in diameter, and refrigerate for 1-2 hours. Store in the fridge in an airtight container.
