My friend and teacher Jennilee leaves this week to teach Embodied Anatomy in Costa Rica. I’m sending her off with some (new and improved!) Fudge Babies, packaged in a darling cake pop manner.


This presentation helps avoid the dreadful confusion with fudge babies and meatballs.

2 cups pitted dates (I used organic medjool variety, easy to remove the pit)
1/2 cup oats (mine are gluten-free, but feel free to omit..reduce dates by 1/2 cup accordingly)
1/2 cup raw unsalted sunflower seeds
3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2 tbsp raw cacao
1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
optional – 1 tbsp nutritional yeast (I don’t taste it, others say they can; up to you!)

Blend in food processor, then roll into balls with your scrupulously clean hands. I keep these in the fridge because of the chocolate. These are my biggest healthy [shhhh!] dessert ever.

Thanks again Chocolate Covered Katie, who makes vegan and gluten-free fun!
