These rum balls are raw, gluten-free and Paleo friendly. You can replace the Rum with rum essence if you desire, however in my view, a rum ball without rum is not a rum ball. 

As you can see, just because something is gluten-free doesn't mean it's low in carbs, so don't eat too many!


- soak the figs overnight in water or if in a hurry 15 mins in boiling water to soften them prior to putting in the food processor. Remember to cut off the hard stalks. 

Ingredients: (makes 10-15)

1 1/2 cups blanched almonds 

1 cup dried figs (presoaked and strained)

1/3 cup cocoa powder or raw cacao powder

2 tbsp maple syrup 

1 tbsp pure vanilla extract

3 tbsp rum (OR 2 tsp rum essence)

2 tsp of lemon juice or rice vinegar

pinch of pink murray river salt

2 tbsp coconut oil

Shredded or dessicated coconut for dusting


1. Place the almonds into a food processor and process until they are finely crumbled (just a bit less fine than almond flour).

2. Add in all remaining ingredients and process until everything is combined and the mixture begins to form into a ball.

3. Take small bits of the mixture and roll into balls using your hands.

4. Toss in coconut

5. You are now eating rum balls Vitalign style
