Ooo these are DE-licious. I can’t stop eating them! You don’t need to make balls out of these by the way. I also made a loaf tin which worked (albeit denser), and muffins will be fine too. But cake balls are fun if you have the ball mould 🙂

 

4 medium very ripe bananas

10 medjool dates, pitted and soaked in hot water briefly

3/4 cup tapioca flour (starch)

1/2 cup brown rice flour

1/2 cup buckwheat flour

1/2 cup non dairy milk (with 1 tsp vinegar added)

80 gm dark non dairy chocolate, roughly chopped

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp bicarb soda

1 tsp vanilla extract

pinch salt

 

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.

Blend dates, bananas, milk (and vinegar) and vanilla together until a smooth paste forms.

Combine mixtures and stir until mixed.

 

Spray an oven cake pop tin and spoon mixture in, add lid, and bake at 190 deg Celsius for 15-20 minutes (or alternatively, bake muffins in a muffin tray).

Test with a skewer and remove when cooked in the middle.

Enjoy!
