Chocolate Coconut Almond Balls

I’m always working on creating quick, easy, and healthy on-the-go snack recipes, and this one is definitely a winner.


Chocolate Coconut Almond Balls


(makes about 6 balls)

  • 2 fresh pitted Medjool dates
  • 1/2 C whole almonds (unsalted)
  • 1 Tbsp. dark chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp. oats
  • 1 Tbsp. water (to help it stick)
  • 1/4 C unsweetened coconut (for rolling)


1) Pour coconut onto a plate and set aside.

2) Place the rest of the ingredients (except coconut) into a food processor. Process about 30 seconds to 1 minute.

3) Wet hands (do this each time before you form the balls — it will help everything stick) and then form mixture into ball shapes. The recipe should yield about 6!

4) Roll balls in coconut mixture.

Enjoy! :)

    Can these be made with dried dates? And if so, how much would you say should go in?
