Chocolate & Almond Balls

I made these balls for an event recently and they went down a treat!  They’re my ‘go to’ snack for curbing sugar cravings – they have the sweetness of the dates and the chocolate from the cacao (the raw and unprocessed version of cocoa).  My children love them too!
chocolate & almond balls
What you need:

  • 1 cup pitted medjool dates
  • 1 cup activated almonds (activated nuts are soaked nuts – this isn’t essential but is much better for our digestion)
  • 1/3 cup raw organic cacao powder
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil (melted gently if not already liquid)
  • 1-2 drops of doTERRA wild orange or peppermint essential oil (optional)
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

What you do:

  1. Soak dates in warm water for 15 minutes to soften.
  2. Whilst dates are soaking add almonds, cacao, shredded coconut, coconut oil, chia seeds, and essential oil (if using) to processor and mix.
  3. Add dates and process.
  4. If mixture is too dry add either a tablespoon of filtered water, or a little bit more coconut oil.
  5. Let mixture sit for 10 minutes.
  6. Roll mixture into bite sized balls.
  7. Roll balls in shredded coconut or cacao if you like.

Store in the fridge (they also freeze well) Enjoy!
