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:

80g dates

30g pecans

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.
