1 cup raw almonds
1 cup soft pitted dates
1/2 cup finely shredded banana squash
1/2 cup shredded coconut, plus extra for rolling
Splash of olive oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp nutmeg
Pinch of sea salt
Process almonds in a food processor to very fine pieces. Add dates a little at a time. Add olive oil, salt, nutmeg, and vanilla. The mixture will look like very coarse meal at first and then will turn into one big ball.
Remove dough from processor and using your hands, mix in squash and coconut, mixing well. Roll mixture into small balls (approximately one inch in diameter) and roll in remaining coconut until covered. Place balls in a single layer on a plate and freeze until firm.
