Chocolate Bites

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.
