Recipes: Cacao Balls

Having a very sweet tooth I often find myself probably having a few more biscuits or pieces of cake than I probably should 😦

This recipe offers you a delicious treat that you don’t have to feel guilty about, perfect for a high tea with a healthy twist!!!

What you need:

  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1 cup walnuts or almonds
  • 1/3 cup raw organic cacao powder
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 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 nuts, cacao, shredded coconut, coconut oil and chia seeds to processor and mix.
  3. Add dates and process.
  4. If mixture is too dry add either a tablespoon of  water, or a little bit more coconut oil.
  5. Let mixture sit for 10 minutes.
  6. Roll mixture into bite size ball size.
  7. Roll balls in shredded coconut.

Tip: I often make a massive batch and store these in the freezer.

Enjoy
