Christmas Chocolate Rumballs Healtherized

Rich Chocolate Rumballs photo [1]Rumballs are one of our favourite Christmas treats. For years I made rumballs with tons of butter, crushed cookies, chocolate chips and icing sugar.

These rumballs are made with a blend of raw nuts, rich in health enhancing unsaturated fats that feed your trillions of cells and heighten the functioning of your brain and nervous system, which means you feel and think better! Your cells rebuild and protect themselves, viscosity of blood and pliability of artery walls is improved, excess saturated and damaged fats are burnt off lowering cholesterol, immunity is enhanced; every function in your body heightened and improved when you eat raw nuts and seeds regularly.

Nuts are a powerhouse of antioxidant protection, rich in Vitamin E’s, rebuilding proteins, phosphorus, magnesium and other important nutrients used by your body to rebuild and protect itself.

Nuts fill you up with everything you need, extreme quality protein, fibre, vitamins, minerals, highly unsaturated fats, phytochemicals … if you are craving food, eat nuts, they one of the secrets to super nutrition!

The Recipe:

2 cups ground, raw, unsweetened coconut

3 cups ground, raw almonds

2 cups ground, raw pecans

¼ cup raw cocoa powder

½ cup amber rum

1 cup raw agave nectar

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 ground, raw oat groats or steel cut oats

1 cup ground or whole raw, unsweetened coconut for rolling the balls in.

Grind the nuts into meal using a powerful blender or food processor. If you have a Vitamix, use the dry blending jar for this.

Mix the nuts thoroughly with cocoa powder, add agave nectar, vanilla and rum. When thoroughly blended together, sprinkle in the ground oats and work them in, giving them time to soak up the liquid and harden the mixture for rolling.

Make balls with your hands and roll them in coconut or cocoa.

Place in a container with a tight lid, in the refrigerator, until about 30 minutes before serving. If you are keeping them any longer than two days, pop them in the freezer to keep them fresh.
