Raw Cocoa Nut Balls

in Holidays,Snacks,Sweet Treats

This easy to make dessert satisfies cravings for chocolate and are nutritious as well!


  • 1/2 cup pitted dates
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 3 T organic cocoa powder
  • 1 T vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp coarse sea salt

Blend all ingredients in a food processor and  form into little balls. Chill and enjoy plain or roll balls in coarse sea salt, finely chopped cocoa nibs, or a mixture of both.


You may substitute pecans or almonds for walnuts. I like to make these balls the diameter of nickels, but any size will do.
