Raw Chocolate Energy Balls

Very easy to make and stores in the fridge for at least a week. A great way to satisfy a chocolate craving and kids and adults alike love them.


2 1/2 cups pitted dates
1 cup almond meal/powder
1/2 cup raw cocoa powder
1/4 cup black currants (or white) or for something really special use semi-dried cranberries
2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil (add gradually after all other ingredients are mixed and stop adding if the mixture already sticks together well)


  1. Process in food processor (be patient as the dates can clog up the blades).
  2. Take a tablespoon of mixture and roll in your hands into balls – or make them any size or shape you wish
  3. Keep refrigerated.
  4. If travelling or putting them in a lunchbox or handbag – roll them in crushed nuts, sesame seeds, desiccated coconut etc – this will ensure that they don’t stick together as they warm up.
