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