I love having a stash of these in the freezer at all times - perfect for afternoon tea or dessert, just pop out a few and pair with a peppermint tea.  They're super healthy for you with a bunch of incredible superfoods, and will settle any sweet craving you might have in an instant.  You can also add a few drops of peppermint oil to make a nice after dinner mint ball.

Cacao Coconut Superfood BallsPlant based, made with wholefoods, vegan, sugar free, gluten free, and suitable if you're following a Paleo diet too; no one will say no to these if you bring them to the party. Soaking the nuts will remove the enzyme inhibitors and make it easier to digest all the nutrients in the nuts, but if you run out of time for this they'll still be awesome.

Makes 20 balls

Make with

*Always use certified organic ingredients whenever possible*

1 c raw nuts soaked & rinsed (check out info on soaking times here)
1/3 c raw cacao powder
1/3 c desiccated coconut
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
1 c medjoul dates (or regular dates soaked in hot water for 15 mins)
2 Tbsp melted coconut oil

Optional Addins
1 Tbsp chocolate brown rice/pea protein
2 tsp mesquite
1 tsp maca
1 Tbsp chia seeds
Up to 1 Tbsp yacon/coconut/agave/maple syrup

Roll in

Raw cacao nibschia seeds, cacao powder, acai powder, maqui powder, desiccated coconut, or sesame seeds

How to

  2. Add dates one by one while processor is running, then add chia seed gel, coconut oil and sweetener til combined.
  3. Roll into balls then roll in your roller material of choice. Pop in the freezer for 1 hr, then enjoy. Keep in the freezer for optimal firm-factor.

Try them out! Let me know if you love them as much as I do.
