Cardamom Banana balls

Seemingly sweet, these little desserts may not actually satisfy a sweet tooth.  My family gave them the go-ahead but I wasn’t too impressed.  Not bad for an experiment though and filled with fiber and nutrients.  They certainly weren’t unagreeable.




1 cup dates (soaked for an hour or so)

2 ripe bananas

1/3 cup shredded coconut (plus extra for rolling)

3 tbsp psyllium husk

1 heaping tsp ground cardamom

1 tsp cinnamon

2-3 dashes of fine sea salt



Drain the dates and in a food processor blend them up to the consistency you desire.  In a medium sized bowl mash the bananas, coconut, cinnamon, cardamom, psyllium husk.  Add in the dates and a few pinches of salt. 

In another bowl put some extra coconut for rolling (about a half cup).  Roll the mixture into balls as best you can and roll into the coconut.  

Place on a rack in your food dehydrator or eat them raw!
