About Nadine

I love working with the team that we have at Ignite. There is a strong work ethic, but we know how to have fun together too. Working and training with people who are passionate about the same things as me is priceless. I’ve been lucky enough to have competed in the CrossFit Games at ‘The Ranch’ in 2009.

This isn’t a recipe for everyday, but if you want something to serve your friends, after dinner for example, or at a kid’s party (they’re nut free) that are easy to make (I’m all about easy as you know by now!), then this recipe is great and always gets people’s thumbs up!

15 large medjool dates, pitted
2 tbsp coconut oil
4 tbsp dried shredded coconut
3 tbsp cacao powder
1-2 drops of cinnamon, peppermint or wild orange essential oil

Mix all ingredients together in a food processor until it forms a ball.
Place in the fridge for about ten minutes. Remove from fridge and roll into balls (you choose the size) and coat with shredded coconut.
Place in fridge for at least 20 minutes before sharing.
