We had a great time Friday morning giving out free, direct-trade and locally roasted coffee from Moby Coffee Roasters and making up some delicious treats. The recipes for the GF, DF cocoa date and nut balls and the pumpkin pie spiced turnovers are included below. Both of these recipes were a breeze to make using just a few simple ingredients from Arome!
Cocoa Date and Nut Balls
Combine dates, eggs, honey, butter and cocoa powder in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 3-5 minutes until mixture is smooth, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and stir in 1 Tbl. Vermont maple aged balsamic, 1 tsp. vanilla extract and 1/2 tsp. sea salt and stir until combined.
Add 2 cups of chopped nuts and stir until thoroughly combined. Allow mixture to cool sufficiently and roll into balls of desired size. Roll balls in coconut flakes and place on a sheet and cool in refrigerator until firm.
Pumpkin Pie Spice Turnovers
It was on my family farm in the heart of Oregon's Willamette Valley where I developed a love for cooking and the value of good food. Home grown, fresh, vibrant, good food. As an adult I spent my early years as a civil engineer, but came back to my creative side through encouragement from my husband, family and friends and opened Arome in the spring of 2017. The road goes on forever and the party never ends.
