Chocolate & Cinnamon Kokosh Cake

When I go to Toronto, there is a dessert called Kokosh Cake that I love. I usually buy it at a place called Hermes on Bathurst Street, the address is 2885 Bathurst Street, North York. Layers of dough surrounded by a delicious chocolate filling…and sometimes I find it with a cinnamon filling which is hard to find…Since I live in Edmonton & I am pretty sure that no one make Kokosh Cake here, I have to make it myself. The recipe I decided to make is from Truffles & Trends…I made 4 small ones from one recipe…2 with 1/2 of the recipe for the chocolate filling on that page & the other one with a cinnamon filing. The recipe calls for butter, but I like to have most of my desserts non-dairy so I use Becel Vegan can use any vegan margaine you like.. Earth Balance… whatever, or use the butter….

Date & Cocoa Energy Balls

I am going to check out a few energy ball recipes so this one is


Who doesn’t need more energy?? Or a healthy snack? The original recipe for these are from My grandkids love these as a snack so I thought they would be great for some friends of mine who are vegan. I was going to visit them & knew these would be a perfect treat to take over. They don’t like to give their kids sugar & the original recipe calls for dairy-free dark chocolate. All of my vegan chocolate I do have in the house has brown sugar added…so I used cocoa powder instead of the chocolate. I didn’t have any chia seeds, so as suggested in the recipe I used flax. I had to add extra dates as the mixture was a bit too dry. i am going to give you the link to the original recipe & below the link the substitutions I made.

Here is the ingredient list I used

1 1/4 cup pitted dates, cut in half to make sure there were no pits

3 tbsp natural peanut butter with peanuts pieces

1 tbsp flax seed

2/3 cu quick oats

1 tbsp cocoa powder


Mix together in a food processor & then form into balls. I used a cookie scoop.
