Tobi’s Cream-of-Coconut Babies
1 cup almonds – roasted
1/2-3/4 cup dates (I need a scale, but in the meantime it was tightly packed and roughly between 1/2 and 3/4 cup)
1/2-3/4 cup coconut milk (approximately equal amount as dates)
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut (I used an organic reduced fat type)
2 T cocoa
I soaked the dates in the coconut milk overnight. Toast raw almonds in oven. Grind almonds in food processor, add soaked dates including coconut milk, and process until ‘baby’ texture. I split the dough into 1/2 and added the cocoa to one half for a chocolate version. These turned out delicious!
Leah’s Kentucky Derby Pie Babies
Derby pie is a pecan or walnut pie with bourbon and chocolate chips–so I made babies with:
about 15g vegan semisweet chocolate chips
and a splash of bourbon vanilla extract.
Yum. Highly recommneded.
Janani’s Carrot Coconut Cake Babies
- 1 cup shredded carrot (or about 1 large carrot)
- heaping 1/2 cup dried coconut
- 1/2 cup dried mango (chopped into pieces)
- 1/4 dates (or substitute half a banana for banana carrot cake!)
- 1/2 cup nuts or seeds of your choice (I used half flax, half walnuts)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp cloves
- 1/2 tsp cardamom (or to taste)
Put it all in a food processor, whir away, and then shape as you like!
Note: If you use bananas instead of dates, do make sure to eat them more quickly, and store them in the fridge no matter what.
