  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder Raw
  • 1/4 cup coconut Unsweetened Shredded
  • 1/4 cup Pecans Raw (can also use walnuts or almonds)
  • 1/4 cup Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil Organic
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • Few drops vanilla extract
  • 1/4-1/2 cup chocolate chips Dark Vegan (Can use raw chocolate chopped up or carob chips)

Instructions

  1. In a Vitamix or high speed blender, add dates and water and blend until smooth.
  2. Add all ingredients except chocolate chips and blend until thick and chunky.
  3. Transfer to a bowl and add chips if you are using them.
  4. Mix until chips are incorporated and form into balls.
  5. Refrigerate to harden a bit and enjoy!

I am compiling a list of GMO Verified products to help you make informed buying decisions. As you are probably aware, the FDA does not require the labeling of  (genetically modified organisms) gmo ingredients. I believe it’s our right to know what we are eating and so do the companies listed below. I am also convinced that gmos cause cancer.

This list is constantly being updated. So check back often.

Drews Natural Dressings are all GMO free and it says so on their label. I also stumbled on an interesting article in Earth Island Journal about companies that listen to their consumers and are ditching the  gmos.

I buy Hail Merry snacks as a treat for myself or as a gift for someone. To be honest, Her products are a bit pricey to eat on a daily basis, but well worth the cost when I want to indulge myself. Here is the link to her online store — you can also find out store locations that carry her products.
