I shot this photograph for the Coatesville School's fundraising cook book. This recipe is just one of 35 fantastic family-friendly ones in the book.

The kids think that they are chocolate, but in fact they are good for you. (They are also vegetarian, gluten free, lactose free, egg free and wheat free - although check the ingredients list on your vanilla and cocoa to ensure this)

2 cups raw almonds
2 cups medjool dates
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 tablespoons rich dark cocoa
Dessicated coconut

Blend all ingredients together, roll into balls and roll in dessicated coconut.

Best stored chilled, with layers of baking paper between.

Simple!
