Food | Raw Chocolate Coconut Date Balls

Eating healthy does not mean your diet only consists of foods that slowly turn you into a rabbit. If you have the right recipes you can make treats that are delicious and super good for you! This recipe idea is from the book Powerfood by Rens Kroes.

These chocolate, date balls are so freaking delicious. There are no words to describe how good they taste. And bonus: they are made with healthy ingredients and are super easy to make! I changed up the measurements from the recipe in the book, because I wanted to make a small portion.

So what do you need?
-       10 pitted dates
-       2 handfuls of mixed nuts ( I used almonds, walnuts and cashew nuts)
-       A teaspoon of chia seed
-       A teaspoon of flax seed
-       40 gr raw dark chocolate or two tablespoons of raw cacao powder
-       A tablespoon of coconut oil
-       Shredded coconut

All you need to do is mix the ingredients, except the shredded coconut, in a food processor until it has a fine consistency. Then expect things to get messy when you take a bit of the date/nut mixture and roll it into a small ball. After that you roll it into the shredded coconut and put it on a plate. Repeat this until there is no date/nut mixture left. Put the date balls in the fridge for about 45 minutes and they are ready to eat! YUM!
