Number of Servings: 18
Green lentils – 150 g
Dates with seeds – 200 g
Nuts mix – 180 g (120 g – in candies, 80 g – for sprinkling candies)
Cocoa powder – 5 tbsp. (3 tbsp. – in sweets, 2 tbsp. – for sprinkling sweets)
Alcohol-Free Vanilla Essence – 1 tsp.

Cooking method:

  1. Prepare all the ingredients you need. You can take any nuts for sweets to your taste. I have a mixture of almonds, hazelnuts, and walnuts.
  2. Soak dates in cold water for 1 hour. Then dry and remove the pits.
  3. Rinse the lentils, cover with cold water and cook until tender.
  4. Dry the nuts in a dry frying pan for about 7 minutes, stirring constantly.
  5. Cool the nuts, and then grind with a blender in the “pulse” mode.
  6. Grind the dates in a blender.
  7. Add boiled lentils, cocoa, and vanilla essence to the dates. Grind.
  8. Finally, add chopped nuts and mix thoroughly.
  9. From the resulting mass, roll the candies of the desired shape and roll some of them in groundnuts, and some in cocoa.
  10. Put the prepared candies in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Serve with your favorite drink, especially sweets are great with a cup of aromatic coffee.
