Almond, Date & Cacao Balls

Serves: 14 bite size balls

Prep time: 10mins + refrigeration

1 cup raw almonds

1 1/2 cups dates (soaked in water for 10 mins)

2 tbsp raw cacao powder

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp flaxseed meal

1/2-1 tbsp coconut oil, melted

Desiccated coconut (for rolling)


Soak dates in warm water for 10 mins and then drain water and add to food processor/ blender.

Measure out the rest of  the ingredients and add to the food processor/ blender.

Combine until ingredients form a dough like consistency.

Scoop the mixture out in 1 tbsp balls, shaping with fingers (this bit gets sticky so slightly wet hands will help).

Spread desiccated coconut onto a plate and roll balls, gently coating with the coconut.

Place the coconut covered balls in the fridge and cool until hardened (about 2 hours).

Enjoy 1-2 as a healthy, sweet treat!
