Ingredients:

2 cups raw almonds

2 tsp ground ginger

2 tsp allspice

1 tbsp tahini

8 medjool dates, pitted

2 tbsp coconut nectar (or honey)

2 tbsp desiccated coconut

Let’s do this!

In a food processor, process the almonds until they become a fine crumb. Add the ginger and allspice, and process again briefly.

Add the tahini, dates and coconut nectar, and process until the mixture becomes sticky. If it’s not coming together, add 1 tsp of water.

Taking 1 tbsp of mixture at at time, roll into balls and coat with desiccated coconut.

    I was just wondering if you ever soak the nuts beforehand or use already activated nuts. I’ve only just started looking through your recipes & it doesn’t seem like it, which surprises me?

      Hi Tania,
      No, I don’t soak the nuts beforehand. If you wish to soak your nuts first for maximum nutrition/digestibility, you will need to dehydrate them afterwards so they become dry again – that way the recipe will still work.

    I have a son with pyroluria -(and schizophrenia). He is undermethylated, has high copper (free copper =34, and cannot have folate.

    The P2P and zinc greatly help the stress attacks.

    I was looking for a recipe with low copper and sugar. This recipe is loaded with both.

      Hi Pat,

      There are lots of other recipes on this site that will be lower in copper and sugar – feel free to have a look around. Interestingly, most of my pyrrole clients succeed in getting their free copper down just by filtering their water, taking supplements, and working on boosting ceruloplasmin (which helps bring down free copper). I don’t usually restrict copper in the diet (as you would probably know, lots of healthy nutrient-rich veggies are high in copper too). This is why I don’t limit myself to low-copper recipes on my website.
