Almonds are full of nutritional value and add crunchiness. Whereas perks of adding dates is, it helps to boost energy and it’s natural sweetness. The basic ingredients are just almonds, dates, and coconut oil. I also add some cocoa powder to give it a twist of taste and peanut butter which gives it a buttery flavour. Coating the balls in the grated coconut gives it a finishing touch.
