  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup/ 100g medjool dates
  • 1/4 cup/ 27g coconut flour

  1. In a food processor blend together the chickpeas, almond butter, molasses, ginger, cinnamon, salt and dates until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed.
  2. Add the coconut flour and process again. You should have a dough-like consistency.
  3. Roll into balls and freeze for at least 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips with coconut oil in the microwave safe bowl in series of 20 seconds, mixing in between each interval so chocolate doesn’t burn.

  6. Refrigerate and enjoy!
