Kumara & Ginger Balls

Sweet and healthy treat.



  1. Chop the kumara into equal sized pieces and boil or steam until cooked (around 10-15 minutes). Drain and return to the pan and mash with a fork.
  2. Add all the ingredients except the cocoa powder to a food processor and blend to combine to a dough-like consistency.
  3. Roll heaped teaspoon sized chunks of the mixture into balls and roll in the cocoa powder to coat. Store in the fridge.
