We all know that we should decrease our sugar intake, but the assumption is that if you give up sugar, you are giving up desserts and treats – this is just not the case! Carolyn Hartz has shared one of her sugar-free dessert recipes here.
100g almond meal
130g raw cashews
4 dried figs, chopped
2 tsp Perfect Sweet® xylitol
1 tbsp cacao or good quality cocoa powder
20ml coconut oil, melted
50g dried goji berries
Desiccated coconut for coating
Process all ingredients except the goji berries in a food processor, until smooth.
Mix in the goji berries and shape into 18 walnut sized balls. Roll the balls in the coconut and store in the fridge.
