Author Mas & Pas


  • 2 cups gluten free rolled oats (180 grams)
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • 75 grams cooked beetroot chopped
  • 3 Medjool dates (about 50 grams)
  • ½ cup maple syrup (120 ml)
  • ¼ cup almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder dark
  • ½ cup milk chocolate chips (120 grams)
  • 100 grams shredded coconut (for rolling)


  • In a blender place the cooked beetroot, rolled oats and pumpkin seeds. Pulse for 30 seconds.
  • Add the maple syrup and chopped dates and buzz again.
  • Finally add in the almond butter, cocoa powder and chocolate chips. Pulse until everything is well combined, scraping down the sides of your mixer between pulses.
  • Scoop the dough out into a bowl.
  • Spoon out a small amount at a time and roll it into a ball between your palms (this bit can get a little sticky). Each ball should be about 1 inch wide.
  • Empty the desiccated coconut into a shallow bowl or plate.
  • After forming each ball, roll them around in the coconut shavings.
  • Place in the fridge to firm up and enjoy with your next morning coffee!
