Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup mix of walnuts and almonds
  • 1/2 cup dried shredded coconut
  • 1 cup plums
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1/2 cup mix of cacao and shredded black chocolate I used Dar Chocolate
  • salt to taste

Instructions

  • Gather all the ingredients.
  • Soak the plums for 1/2 hour until soft.
  • Cut the chocolate in very small pieces.
  • Pit the plums and blend them well in a food processor.  
  • Place the walnuts and almonds in a food processor, pulse them until they are fine.
  • Remove the nuts from the food processor, place into a bowl and set aside.
  • Gather the blended nuts, the plums, the banana, and the chocolate.
  • Add the pitted plums and pulse several times. Once the plums have formed a paste, roughly cut up the banana and add it to the plums along with the vanilla. Pulse a few times to blend everything together.
  • Add the plum mixture to the nuts. Add a pinch of salt. This gives a flavourful combination between salt and sweet.
  • Mix to combine. To finish add the mix of cacao and the chocolate and mix them all well to combine.

Notes

  • Instead of plums, you can use dates. Prepare them in the same way.
  • Except for the shredded coconut, you can either roll them in cocoa powder or in shredded hazelnuts. All the choices match perfectly together.
  • Use fresh nuts.
