Sometimes, you just want a chocolate fix, not a whole block, just a bite to satisfy the desire..
So, I went looking for a small chocolate bite that wasn’t sweet, would satisfy the chocolate desire, was healthy and nourishing and was small enough for a couple of small bites without filling me up.
These are so good, that I make them all the time. They’re now a permanent treat in our fridge.
Oh, did I mention that they’re healthy too!
Protein – from the chia seeds and almond meal
Healthy fat – from the coconut oil and shredded coconut
Fibre – from the dates and almond meal
Antioxidants – from the cacao powder
Here’s what you need:
- 1 cup of pitted dates, chopped
- 1 cup almond meal
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 1/3 cut cacao powder
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
Here’s what you do:
Place the chopped dates in a bowl and cover with some warm water. Soak for about 1/2 hour, then drain.
Place the dates and all the rest of the ingredients in a food processor and process until combined (about 30-40 seconds).
Roll into small balls and then roll each ball into some extra shredded coconut – or you can leave them plain like these ones.
Keep in the refrigerator.
