Healthy date bites

Ella Woodward's new cook book Deliciously Ella – named after her very popular food blog – is apparently the fastest selling maiden cook book ever in the UK. She has built up a huge loyal following on her blog, supplying her readers with no fuss, healthy options while satisfying cravings for tasty sweet food. Impossible?- no!
My take on her raw brownies are prepared in the Thermomix and I have glued stuff together with coconut oil ( which if I am allowed, I have been adding to EVERYTHING!) the delight of this basic recipe is that you just change it to suit your own preferences for nuts, seeds etc, or to suit what you have in the cupboard when you have a craving!
For every 500g of pitted dates, and 50g of cacao nibs ( finely grated in the TM bowl sp 10), I add 180g (total) of nuts, seeds, coconut, and 40g coconut oil. Mix sp 6/7 until sticky. Then just spread in a traybake tin and pop in fridge. Simply cut into slices or roll into balls. It's that simple and oh so tasty. Feel free to coat in chai seeds, coconut or, dare I say, chocolate.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
