  • ¾ cup Sunflower Seeds - ground
  • ½ cup Dates - pitted, chopped
  • ½ cup walnuts - chopped
  • ½ cup cacao powder - unsweetened
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup Almond Butter - creamy
  • ½ cup rolled oats - old fashioned, there are also gluten free oats
  • 6 ounces coconut for coating - unsweetened


  • So simple and delicious.
  • Grind the sunflower seeds in your Food Processor
  • Chop up the dates and walnuts.
  • Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
  • My method of preparation is that I divide the mixture in half.
  • Use your hands. It makes everything so easy.
  • Divide the mixture in half and then half again ... and so on and so on until you get 48 sections.
  • Roll into balls with the palm of your hands.
  • You can always pinch out a little from the balls that are a little bit larger if you would like to make more.
  • Roll each ball in the shredded coconut.
  • Put on a cookie sheet and let freeze for about to hours.
  • Remove and serve.
  • They will also freeze for up to 2 months.


I keep mine in the freezer and pick one out whenever I want a snack.
You can freeze them in any of the methods shown in my article https://veganinthefreezer.com/preparing-food-for-the-freezer/ They defrost quickly so it really doesn't take any planning.
In fact, you can eat them right out of the freezer. They aren't too hard at all.
