Gluten-Free Coffee Rum Balls
Not your typical coffee rum ball recipe. Dates, walnuts, pineapple, and cherries tie nicely with coffee and rum for a festive sweet treat.
I promise you that these gluten-free coffee and rum flavoured mini desserts will satisfy your sweet tooth every time.
What is a coffee rum ball?
These sweet treats are sweetened with only healthy dates. Rum balls are a mixture of raw ingredients rolled into balls and then often rolled in cocoa powder or powdered sugar.
These healthy-ish rum balls are made with fruit, nuts, espresso coffee and a splash of rum. The entire dough for the balls is made easily in a food processor.
Then the dough is shaped into balls and rolled in pure cocoa powder. These coffee and rum flavoured sweets then have to be chilled, allowing them to firm up. So, there is no baking involved…NICE!
Are dried cherries healthy?
One of the ingredients in this recipe is dried cherries. Surprisingly, cherries are an excellent source of vitamin A (provitamin A) known as beta-carotene. And as with most fruits, they are packed with vitamins and minerals.
This dessert will keep up to 14 days!
I love that these festive sweet treats will keep in the refrigerator for up to 14 days. So you can make them well in advance and always have something sweet on hand when needed. This is why they are so popular during the holidays.
Did I mention, these heavenly grain-free coffee rum balls will melt in your mouth. They are that good!
