Day 10 - On My Table

We will be having these home made scrumptious date balls for Iftar today, in sha Allah. Let me know if you would like the recipe, they are super easy to make! Since several of you asked me for the recipe on my Instagram, here it is!

Recipe Adapted from Friday Magazine
2 cups Mejdool dates, pitted
2 cups walnuts
50 g sesame seeds
3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
Coconut powder, as required

Finely chop walnuts in a food processor. 
Add dates, sesame seeds, and coconut oil and pulse several times until it becomes a thick dough. Add a bit more coconut oil if required. 
Dampen your palms with water and roll out little balls from the dough.
Roll the balls in coconut powder. 
Freeze until firm. 
Leave the balls out for five to ten minutes before serving.
