My absolute favorite treat to make for breakfast, dessert, and every snack in between! No refined sugar, oil, or nuts. All natural, sweet goodies that are delicious at any point during the day. They’re great to crumble onto smoothie bowls, dip in some peanut butter, or even eat plain. Their chewy texture makes them incredibly addicting.
I’ve never made a recipe more often. I love these! I wish I could make them while I’m away at school, but I don’t have a food processor. The ingredients are really simple and straight forward. It’s a hard recipe to mess up and there’s lots of room for adjustments. You can add cacao nibs or peanut butter or whatever you want! The options are endless.
Chewy Chocolate Date Balls
These chewy treats are great for any snack and never fail to brighten my day. The date and oat base adds for a flavor that's just sweet enough.
- Use a food processor to blend the dates until it creates a paste-like texture. There should be no bits left.
- Add in the cacao powder, carob powder, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and oats.
- Turn on the food processor and mix the ingredients. Keep the processor going until the ingredients fully combine to form a ball on their own. **If after waiting 5 minutes of processing and the ingredients don’t form a ball, add one date at a time until it does. Wait at least a minute in between adding dates to make sure you don’t add too many.
- Roll the mixture into balls and they’re ready to go! You can roll the balls as little or as big as you’d like. This recipe will make 13 balls about 1 inch in diameter.
Hope you enjoy! This is one of my favorite recipes :)
