Healthy chocolate power balls recipe

These healthy chocolate power balls are filling and sweet enough to satisfy the most intense 3pm chocolate craving. I try to have a jar of these in the fridge and reach for them after dinner instead of dessert or any time I'm hankering for something sweet.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups walnuts
  • 2 ½ cups dates, pitted
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1/4 cup honey

Method:

Place walnuts in food processor and blend until the nuts are finely ground. Add the dates, cocoa powder, almonds and honey and keep pulsing until you have a fine but sticky crumb mixture.

Roll this into little balls about the size of a golf ball and keep in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Variations – roll in coconut once finished and/or swap the almonds for pepitas, sesame seeds and LSA mix.

Makes about 12.

Notes:

  • Variations – roll in coconut once finished and/or swap the almonds for pepitas, sesame seeds or LSA mix.
  • You could also roll these in cocoa powder.
