Choc Date Coconut Balls

Pop everything into a food processor, and voila!



  • 33 Dates (soak in boiling water for at least 30 minutes, then drain)
  • 1 Cup Almond Meal
  • 1/2 cup Desiccated Coconut
  • 1/3 cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1/3 cup Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (solid)
  • 1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds
  • 1/4 cup Mixed Nuts / Seeds
    (I usually use sunflower seeds, and a small amount of hemp seeds – this has a strong flavour so use sparingly)
  • Plus extra Desiccated Coconut for rollingĀ 


  1. Process all dry ingredients in a food processor (so everything minus the coconut oil), on a low setting. It should only take about 20 seconds to reach a crumbly consistency.
  2. Melt coconut oil in microwave on 80% power, and slowly add to food processor while it is running on low.
    If you don’t have a pouring spout, then add a little at a time and pulse in between.
  3. Combine until it all comes together in a single mass.
  4. Transfer to a bowl and stand for 20 minutes for chia seeds to soften.
  5. Roll into marble sized balls. Roll through extra desiccated coconut to coat.

Place in an airtight container and keep for up to a week in the fridge.
