Date balls are an amazing alternative to sweets because they’re made without refined sugar. And – they are gluten-free and full of all kinds of nutrients, dietary fibers and healthy fatty acids for the body. And they are super quick to make. I made a double portion for my birthday party the other day and they were a great supplement to the cakes and birthday buns.

Healthy gluten free date balls

15 pieces
Cooking time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

8 dates
4 figs
1,5 teaspoonful vanilla
4 tablespoon almond flour
1 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp liquid coconut oil

Ideas for decoration:
Liquorice powder, cocoa, coconut, freeze-dried raspberries, gold, silver and pink dust or completely au natural.

Preparation:

1Cut dates and figs into smaller pieces. Make sure the coconut oil is liquid. If it’s not already, heat it on a low flame.

2Blend all ingredients together into a uniform mass in a mini chopper, blender or mixer.

3 Roll medium-sized balls and decorate with whatever you fancy. My favorite is liquorice and coconut, but only your imagination sets the limits.

4 Put the date balls in the fridge. They’ll last for 3-4 days (I reckon). I’ve never been able to test it, if you know what I mean.

  • Excellent with coffee for an afternoon snack.
  • One-bite.
  • No-bake.
  • No sugar! I repeat: NO SUGAR. You can snack with a clear conscience.

How to hygge

Sweets make everything hyggeligt, both eating them and making them.

If you’re not a hygge convert already, it’s a Danish concept and our way of life. Hygge is about an atmosphere, a feeling of home. A feeling that you are safe, feeling cozy and comfortable, and it often involves food and snacking.

So, to make this as hyggeligt as possible, nestle into a mug of coffee, bring out the date balls and get cozy with a warm blanket on the couch.

These date balls will definitely get the hygge going.
