1/2 teaspoon                   Nutmeg 

1/2 teaspoon                   Cinnamon ground 

1 teaspoon                       Freshly Grated Ginger Root 

6 pitted                             Medjool Dates

PREPARATION: Before you start to make this recipe you will need to soak 1/2 a Cup of almonds in about 1 Cup of water for 3-4 hours to activate them. This is an important step as it helps the mixture to bind together and also aids in digestion. 


  1. Place the Activated Almonds and Pecans into a heavy duty blender or magimix and blend on a high speed until the nuts turn into a finely cut flour like mixture. 
  2. Add all of the ingredients including the almond and pecan mix into a bowl and bind all the ingredients together.
  3. Then place the mixture back in the blender or magimix until the mixture is fully mixed together and forms a slightly sticky texture.
  4. Then roll the mixture into balls. 
  5. Lightly Toast the Coconut in a pan or in the oven on a very low heat. make sure to keep an eye on the coconut as it toast very quickly. 
  6. Roll the Toasted Coconut onto the balls and serve or place in the fridge.
