Mighty Reindeer Balls


1/4 cup Mighty Fast coconut oil

6 medjool dates

5 tablespoons hot water

1 1/2 teaspoons peppermint extract

1/2 cup crushed peppermint candy or crushed candy canes

1/4 cup raw cacao or cocoa powder

1/4 cup pure maple syrup

1/2 cup almond meal

1/2 cup oats

1/4 cup mini dark chocolate chips

1/4 cup dried cranberries


After infusing coconut oil in The Mighty Fast Herbal Infuser, set aside 1/4 cup to cool. Soak dates in a medium bowl with 5 tablespoons hot water, peppermint and vanilla extract. Using a rolling pin, gently crush peppermints into tiny sized bits and set aside. In a large bowl mix together cacao or cocoa powder, maple syrup and coconut oil to make chocolate sauce. In a seperate bowl mix together almond meal, oats, chocolate chips and dried cranberries. Mix chocolate sauce into almond oat mixture and stir well. In a high speed blender, blend dates with water and extracts on high until smooth about 3 minutes. Add date paste to chocolate mixture until a dough forms. Using a large tablespoon, scoop out a rounded spoonful and roll into a ball. Roll balls into peppermint bits. Repeat until all balls are rolled in peppermint. Place balls in refrigerator for 30 minutes until solid before eating.
