Fudgy Date Balls Three Ways

The only thing keeping me sane this week has been spending time in the kitchen working on my e-book. My lack of creative juices for my school assignments apparently hasn't hampered my ability to come up with new recipes. 

I had originally planned to make a new batch of my Raw Coconut Macaroons, but I felt like something a little different. Digging around my pantry I took a few of my favourite ingredients to produce these three flavours of fudgy date balls, and I don't regret it one bit. So sweet, fudgy and decadent, these almost taste too good to be remotely healthy - but they are! 

Free from dairy, gluten and added sugars, these will go down a treat. Simply add the ingredients to a blender or food processor and pulse until combined, then roll into balls. Each recipe produces six fudgy date balls, but I can't guarantee that they will last long once you try one.
